In Hell Above Earth, Stephen Frater tells the unforgettable story of two World War II American bomber pilots who forged an unexpected bond in the skies over Germany. But there’s a twist: one of them was related to Luftwaffe chief Hermann Goering, and the other had secret orders from FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to kill him if anything went wrong during their missions. That the two became unlikely friends is just another fascinating angle to one of World War II’s most incredible tales.
A heart-wrenching Greatest Generation buddy story and an adrenaline-filled account of aerial combat, Hell Above Earth centers around the author’s discovery of a half-century old secret that had far-reaching and deeply personal repercussions.

I thought I knew all there was to know about world war 2. Wrong. This is an amazing story and it is so well written that not only did I read an incredible story but got a terrific history lesson as well. I recommend this book highly.
