Silver Wings, Iron Cross
by Tom Young
An American pilot. A German U-boat officer – united by fate in an epic fight for survival.
Lieutenant Karl Hagan earned his wings the hard way. But when his plane is shot down behind enemy lines, he’s forced to make the hardest decision of his life… trusting the enemy.
Oberleutnant Wilhelm Albrecht wore his Iron Cross with pride. But when his U-boat is attacked in a devastating air raid, he abandons ship and finds an unlikely ally. The pilot who bombed him.
November, 1944. The tides of war have turned. The Allies have taken back France, and German troops have retreated. But for Karl and Wilhelm, the war is far from over. Each must be prepared to lie for the other, fight for the other, or die with the other.
A deeply moving WWII thriller from master author Tom Young of two enemy combatants forced to work together, perfect for fans of Alistair MacLean, Jack Higgins and Frederick Forsyth.
