The Forgotten 500 by Gregory A. Freeman Book Summary Abbey Beathan (Disclaimer: This is NOT the original book.) 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. There is much to talk about this tale: the kindness of local Serbian farmers and peasants who put everything on the line in order to give a helping hand to the American soldiers, how they all thought their lives were over but the most amazing part of this tale, is how they were rescued. In this book, you'll read all about Operation Halyard; the legendary rescue mission. (Note: This summary is wholly written and published by Abbey Beathan. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way) "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.
