December, 1943: A badly damaged American bomber struggles to fly over wartime Germany. At the controls is the 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 the German ace Franz Stigler—and he can destroy the young American crew with the squeeze of a trigger.  https://www.amazon.com/Higher-Call-Incredible-Chivalry-War-Torn/dp/B00BH59WVK/ref=tmm_aud_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
