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

    A breathtaking and astonishing book. The true story of Luftwaffe ace Franz Stigler, Me109 pilot in Africa and Europe, and later member of the Me 262 "Expert Geshwader" of Adolf Galland. His life crossed with that of Charles "Charlie" Brown, an USAAF B17 pilot, for one of the most incredible chivalry story of the entire war. The book is great, as tells the whole story of Stigler, serving together with the most famous German fighter aces of WW2: Adolf Galland, Hans Marselle, Johannes Steinhoff, Gerard Barkhorn, Walter Krupinsky and many others.
    Do not miss this book, one of the best I ever read. Also available for Kindle.
