Description
Four days before Christmas 1943, a badly damaged American B-17 bomber struggled to fly home to England alone with 21-year-old 2nd Lt. Charlie Brown at the controls. Half his crew were injured or dead, and they were still over enemy territory, when a German fighter slipped up beside them. But in one of the most incredible encounters of World War II, the enemy pilot did not shoot down the bomber; instead he escorted the crippled plane to the sea, risking his own execution to protect Brown's crew from further attack. This gripping and inspiring account tells the story from both sides, chronicling the events that led both fliers and their comrades to that day—including the reason why Franz Stigler, an ace pilot in an elite flying corps, spared the bomber—and the equally remarkable story of their reunion 46 years later.

"From the horrors of the most savage war in history emerges this beautiful story of a brotherhood between enemies. Simply told, splendid, and well worth the read."—Joe Galloway
