Adam Makos with Voices of the Pacific & A Higher Call

Highlands Ranch: Adam Makos, journalist, historian, and editor of the military magazine Valor, will discuss and sign his two new books Voices of the Pacific (Berkley), stories from fifteen WWII Marines, compiled by Adam Makos and Marcus Brotherton, in the words of the Marines who were there—unfiltered, unflinching, and brutal; A Higher Call (Berkley), the riveting true story that began four days before Christmas 1943, when a badly damaged American bomber struggled to fly over wartime Germany. At its controls was a 21-year-old pilot, half his crew wounded or dead, on their first mission. Suddenly, a sleek, dark shape pulled up on the bomber’s tail—a German Messerschmitt fighter, piloted a German ace able to destroy the American bomber at the squeeze of a trigger. What happened next would defy imagination and later be called "the most incredible encounter between enemies in World War II." This is the true story of the two pilots who stared across the frozen skies at one another in that moment, and what happened between them. It was an encounter that would haunt both for forty years, until they met again as old men.
