This instant Sunday Times bestseller tells the story of two fighter pilots whose remarkable encounter during the Second World War became the stuff of legendFive days before Christmas 1943 a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany At its controls was a twenty one year old pilot Half his crew lay wounded or dead Suddenly a German Messerschmitt fighter pulled up on the bomber's tail the German pilot was an ace a man able to destroy the American bomber with the sueeze of a trigger This is the true story of the two pilots whose lives collided in the skies that day the American 2nd Lieutenant Charlie Brown and the German 2nd Lieutenant Franz Stigler A Higher Call follows both Charlie and Franz's harrowing missions and gives a dramatic account of the moment when they would stare across the frozen skies at one another What happened between them the American 8th Air Force would later classify as 'top secret' It was an act that Franz could never mention or else face a firing suad It was the encounter that would haunt both Charlie and Franz for forty years until as old men they would seek out one another and reunite I know words like that get bandied about all too often but this really is as good as stated It stumbles a little to get going but once it reaches Franz's experiences in North Africa and beyond you simply won't want to stop reading A truly fascinating insight into the enemy and the reality of life in the Luftwaffe written with frankness and self deprecation Although the book centres around the meeting of Franz and Charlie both above Germany and later in life it's really mainly Franz's story And I don't mind admitting to welling up a bit at the end Two extraordinary men in a book full of extraordinary men Will change your Hollywood inspired black and white view of the War In Europe and give some appreciation of the Luftwaffe pilots Brave men unfortunately led by madmen and psychopaths
