A powerful, haunting read."--Chuck Tatum, author of "Red Blood, Black Sand" ""A Higher Call" exemplifies beautifully the brotherhood of warriors, and will forever change how you look at World War II."--Eric Blehm, author of the "New York Times" bestseller, "Fearless: The Undaunted Courage and Ultimate Sacrifice of Navy SEAL Team SIX Operator Adam Brown"" ""From the horrors of the most savage war in history emerges this beautiful story of a brotherhood between enemies.

"A top-notch narrative of the unlikely encounter between one of Germany s leading fighter aces, Franz Stigler, and the rookie crew of an American bomber in the frigid skies of Germany in December 1943...Based on thousands of hours of interviews and an evident knowledge of his subject, Makos details the frantic life of the German fighter pilots living on the edge, and the American bomber crews, far from home, fighting to survive...A riveting story of humanity and mercy set against the ghastly backdrop of war."
