Opening Paragraphs

Steve Layman calls them Opening Paragraphs…because that is what they are.

I started a book this afternoon and it was the first time I felt compelled to do a similar post.51QFdTwXBNL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_

Purchasing this book a few months ago I made reference to it here. The Story of Charlie Brown, but it was buried under the pile of books next to my nightstand and had to make it’s way to the top.

It has arrived….just in time for vacation.

“On December 20, 1943, in the midst of World War II, an era of pain, death and sadness, an act of peace and nobility unfolded in the skies over Northern Germany. An American Bomber crew was limping home in their badly damaged B-17 after bombing Germany. A German fighter pilot in his Bf-109 fighter encountered them. They were enemies, sworn to shoot one another from the sky. Yet what transpired between the fighter pilot and the bomber crewmen that day, and how the story played out decades later, defies imagination. It had never happened before and it has not happened since. What occurred, in most general terms, may well be one of the most remarkable stories in the history of warfare”.
A Higher Call, by Adam Makos
