Among dozens of other history books, I read Reach for the Sky when I was in high school. Fantastic story.

+1 Read in Jr. High.  His radio callsign was "Dog's Body" (for DB or Douglas Bader) What a man!  There have been some American airmen who have been allowed to fly despite having lost at least one leg.  No doubt, the example of Sir Douglas helped them make their case.  Not sure when this program was made, but long enough ago that all are probably gone now.  A salute in tribute to them all!   And thanks to Subdeacon Joe for allowing us to see the program.
