On December 20, 1943, two enemy pilots met in
the skies over Germany—an American, Charlie Brown—and a German, Franz Stigler.

What transpired would be called: “WWII’s most incredible aerial encounter.”

Now, for the first time, A Higher Call tells the complete story of Charlie and Franz’s WWII experiences, their gritty tales of aerial combat over the African desert, the seas of Sicily, the fog of England, and the ultimate battleground—the frozen skies of Germany.
