‘A Higher Call’

To the editor:

I just finished reading a fine book about World War II. In it two pilots meet above Germany in 1943. The book is not about great air battles. Most of it is about the life of the German pilot. He tells how a non-political officer survived in Nazi Germany. He ended the war in JV44, the squadron of experts that flew the Me 263, the first operational jet fighter. Years later the two pilots meet in America.

The book is “A Higher Call” by Adam Makos. The Lanier Library has the copy I read.
