Christmas Note #10: A World War II Story

On 20 December 1943, a B-17 managed to limp back to England after being nearly destroyed by attacking enemy planes. What makes this story more amazing is the fact that it was escorted to the North Sea by a Bf-109 piloted by German Luftwaffe ace Franz Stigler who then saluted the remaining B-17 crew and flew away.

    Another excellent behind-the-scenes WW2 story recently released is Wes Davis’s Ariadne Objective. Especially fascinating for those of us who read Mary Stewart’s My Brother Michael, Georgette Heyer’s Duplicate Death and other stories that briefly mentioned British commandos working undercover with the various anti-Nazi native resistance forces in far-flung places like Greece, Egypt, etc., but who didn’t realize there were really significant missions undertaken by some of those guys. Davis does a nice job of introducing us to the men behind these missions as well as detailing the missions themselves.
