Product description


Praise for The Forgotten 500

"A literary and journalistic achievement of the highest order, a book that illuminates, thrills, and reminds us that heroes sometimes do live among us. It will take your breath away."--Gregg Olsen, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep Dark

"The daring rescue effort to save hundreds of downed airmen in dangerous enemy territory is an amazing but unknown WWII adventure story. Told in riveting detail for the first time, The Forgotten 500 is a tale of unsung heroes who went above and beyond."--James Bradley, New York Times bestselling author of Flags of Our Fathers and Flyboys

"The operation's story is an exciting tale...Evoking the rescuees' successive desperation, wild hope, and joy, and their gratitude to the Serbians who risked their lives to help, Freeman produces a breathtaking popular account."--Booklist

"[F]ascinating...full of romance, action, and adventure...This untold story of World War II has finally been told with skill and grace."--America in WWII magazine

"Greg Freeman has written a riveting account of the greatest escape during World War II. It is a remarkable adventure story of courage and daring that is superbly told."--Anthony C. Zinni, General USMC (Retired)

"This is an exciting, powerful story of escape and rescue. It has been buried for too long."--Tony Koltz, New York Times bestselling author of The Battle for Peace

"[A] gripping, true-life narrative of one of the most heroic and inspiring--but virtually unknown--military operations of World War II....Freeman chronicles it with a master's touch for detail. Although this book reads like a fast-paced novel, it is based on scores of probing interviews and meticulous archival research. The Forgotten 500 is destined to become required reading for serious students of the Second World War."--Malcolm McConnell, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of American Soldier
