Adam Makos is the author of A HIGHER CALL: An Incredible True Story of Combat and Chivalry  in the War-Torn Skies of World War II

December 20th, 1943, in the skies above war-torn Europe, two enemies – an American B-17 pilot and a veteran German fighter ace – met in what became one of World War II’s most unusual encounters.  The little-known true story of the fighter ace who showed mercy to his adversary by escorting the severely damaged B-17 to safety has been upheld by military historians as a testament to the valor, courage, and honor of a bygone time. The book describes the dramatic meeting between Charlie Brown, an American B-17 pilot and Franz Stigler, a German fighter pilot, over wartime Germany on December 20th, 1943
