Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

Book Review - A Higher Call

I bought this book based on a passing remark that someone else made. I can't hardly recommend this book enough! This book pivots on the events of Dec 20th, 1943 as a crippled B-17 heads for home and is escorted over the coast by the pilot of a ME-109. This really isn't the central focus of the book though just the event that would eventually bring two WWII vets together. This is one of those rare books that I could not put down. It is primarily about the career of the ME-109. Starting and flying almost his entire career in the ME-109 and ending as part of JV-44 in ME-262s. This is book is something that is going to become increasingly rare, a story told by the veterans themselves. I don't really want to go into much here, this is a great book, just read it!


  1. Thank you Kris! I downloaded this book last night upon your recommendation, and I have not been able to put it down yet!

    1. I'm glad you are enjoying it. Its certainly one of the best WWII histories that I have read in a long time. I saw comment that someone said it was very historical, that facts weren't verified. It doesn't get much more historical than the voices of the people that lived it!

  2. Nice. Thanks.
