A Higher Call was an excellent read. Even though it's not all about the flying you still can't put this one down. A Higher Call tells the story of two men, Franz Stigler and Charlie Brown, each on a separate path in life until their paths crossed due to World War II.
Charlie Brown was a young pilot of a B17 that was damaged and now a 'straggler' fighting its way back to England. This first mission crew was gravely injured, one member dead and its plane trying to maintain altitude and airspeed.
Thanks to Frank (N631S Blog) for the heads up on this great read!
