In today’s blog post, I will be discussing and reviewing a new book being released today on June 8th, 2021 called Above The Reich by Colin Heaton & Anne-Marie Lewis. I was lucky enough to receive a pre-released copy for free from Random Penguin House agency Dutton Caliber for an honest review. The book was very enlightening and informative.
Strapped into his P-51 fighter, Charles Yeager was ready for his mission to attack targets in the Bordeaux area of France. He was twenty-one years old and already had three months’ experience in combat managing to shoot down two German aircraft. On this day his luck was to change. He occupied the “tail end Charlie” position of his four-plane flight.
Blessed with a cunning ability of outsmarting the Germans and defying their constant traps at every single turn during the second world war, the Gestapo dubbed her “the white mouse”. The actual name of this fearless yet charming woman was Nancy Wake, a New Zealand born journalist who played a critical role in saving lives and never backing down.
