Abstract: On December 20, 1943, Charlie Brown’s B-17 Flying Fortress was on a bombing run over Germany when it sustained heavy damage. It was limping its way out of Germany when it encountered a Messerschmitt BF-107. Despite the damage done to German cities by United States bombing, the Messerschmitt did not fire on the wounded plane. A Higher Call by Adam Makos tells the story of the pilots and the planes. It is more than just a war story. It is the story of grace and mercy. It is the story of respect between enemies. It is the story of the survival of the spirit during a long war. It is the story of hope.
