The untold story of the greatest rescue mission of World War II is finally out in the open.
The amazing story of American airmen trapped in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia.

In this book, you'll read all about Operation Halyard; the legendary rescue mission.

"A sense of duty pursues us ever. It is omnipresent, like the Deity. If we take to ourselves the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, duty performed or duty violated is still with us, for our happiness or our misery." – Gregory A. Freeman
Operation Halyard had to be executed perfectly. The starving Americans needed to construct a large strip large enough for the rescue plane without tools and without alerting the Germans or endangering the villagers. On top of that, the cargo plane had to make it through highly guarded airspace without being shot down. Due to political reasons, the story was buried but now we can read for the first time ever how these American airmen survived with all odds stacked against them.
A story of loyalty, self-sacrifice and human kindness. A thrilling and touching tale that will keep you hooked until the end.
P.S. The Forgotten 500 is an extremely interesting book about the most amazing rescue that happened in WWII.
