Summary
<b><b>A “beautiful story of a brotherhood between enemies”* emerges from the horrors of World War II in this <i>New York Times</i> and international bestseller.&#xa0;<br /><i><br /></i></b></b><i>December, 1943</i>: A badly damaged American bomber struggles to fly over wartime Germany. At the controls is twenty-one-year-old Second Lieutenant Charlie Brown. Half his crew lay wounded or dead on this, their first mission. Suddenly, a Messerschmitt fighter pulls up on the bomber’s tail. The pilot is German ace Franz Stigler—and he can destroy the young American crew with the squeeze of a trigger...<br /><br />What happened next would defy imagination and later be called “the most incredible encounter between enemies in World War II.”<br /><br />The U.S. 8th Air Force would later classify what happened between them as “top secret.” It was an act that Franz could never mention for fear of facing a firing squad. It was the encounter that would haunt both Charlie and Franz for forty years until, as old men, they would search the world for each other, a last mission that could change their lives forever.<br /><br /><b>INCLUDES PHOTOS</b>
