A Higher Call: An Incredible True Story of Combat and Chivalry in the War-Torn Skies of World War II - Adam Makos, Larry Alexander

Charlie did not know the German's name or what he wanted, but he was certain of one thing. Whoever he was, his enemy was a good man.


This book starts with the life of Franz, so that by the time he meets Charlie you are rooting for him, forgetting that he is the German enemy. Well done.
