The characters in the book are fictional, and the hero's life story is much different from that of my uncle, save for their tragic fates. The central story is very compelling, though, and I believe that it's told in a manner that will hold the interest of all readers.
I learned a lot from the book with regard to WW II aviation, particularly with regard to pilot training, mission planning, and air combat. I also learned a lot about Native American history and culture. It's clear that the author is very knowledgeable about these subject matters, and he is able to weave this information into the book without allowing the touching central story to get bogged down in details.
I would highly recommend this book to any and all readers!
It was a great pleasure to read this story - I'd rather say stories - written by a very talented author. I've read many books on aviation, and I had first been enticed by the cover. I had read on the Internet that it was based on a true story.
Then, I dived into one of the most breath-taking air combat sequences I've ever read. I dare say I was even more thrilled by air-to-air combat as well as the flights described than in the Chuck Yeager's autobiography which I love, or Vulcan 607, a best-seller too. Dumbfounded by the realistic vision of war I was reading, I couldn't help but relive some scenes of the movie "Saving Private Ryan".
However it is not a book totally dedicated to aviation history. It is a story of those who need dig out the WW2 heroes' past. A story about destiny, family, sacrifice, death, remembrance, and life.
I loved the skillful way the author makes the reader travel along vast landscapes with the characters, meet people in remote countries. I learned a lot about the Native Americans, about France, and Montana.
I've already bought an extra one for a present, and I wouldn't be surprised if this book became a best-seller.
This book surprised me several times. It did not end when I thought it would. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. One of those you " can not put down".
