Brilliantly written, these men were true hero’s in every sense of the word. Terrific historical quality.
WOW....what a story! Very sad that the world was not allowed to hear this true story immediately after the war. I admired the men that were involved, that they persisted in trying to get the truth out, even many years after the fact. Disappointed to hear that the U.S. followed U.K.'s direction in handling this event, and in the end.....the governments of both countries were wrong.
Fascinating story. The attention to detail and the politics is important but not riveting. Well worth the time to get this "untold" story. (like the title, ha ha). Really a story you should hear.
POWERFUL This book tells a moving and powerful story. It is generally well written, although its does drag a bit and is a little redundant at times. However, this is more than offset by the depth of the individual stories and the tales of the incredible sacrifices made by so many to save these 500 airmen. It also sheds light on the tragic failure by the British government and the American State Dept which led to the rise of Tito and the betrayal of our allies in Serbia. Overall, an interesting book, which reaffirms why this was "The Greatest Generation:.
This is a must read for WWII and/or military history buff's but it is not all that well written/told and does not hold ones attention real well. I stopped and started it several times but eventually finished it and was glad I did for the knowledge.
Remarkable story, well read and exciting from start to finish.
