The Forgotten 500 Book Excerpt:

The astonishing, never before told story of the greatest rescue mission of World War II—when the OSS set out to recover more than 500 airmen trapped behind enemy lines in Yugoslavia... During a bombing campaign over Romanian oil fields, hundreds of American airmen were shot down in Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia. Local Serbian farmers and peasants risked their own lives to give refuge to the soldiers while they waited for rescue, and in 1944, Operation Halyard was born. The risks were incredible. The starving Americans in Yugoslavia had to construct a landing strip large enough for C-47 cargo planes—without tools, without alerting the Germans, and without endangering the villagers. And the cargo planes had to make it through enemy airspace and back—without getting shot down themselves. Classified for over half a century for political reasons, the full account of this unforgettable story of loyalty, self-sacrifice, and bravery is now being told for the first time ever. The Forgotten 500 is the gripping, behind-the-scenes look at the greatest escape of World War II. “Amazing [and] riveting.”—James Bradley, New York Times bestselling author of Flags of Our Fathers

Summary of Gregory A Freeman s The Forgotten 500 Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Clare Musgrove, an American airman, was taken to many villages in northern Yugoslavia by local Serbian people who were essentially escorting him. They would give him food and protection from German patrols, but he was apprehensive about where he was being taken. #2 One of the men in Musgrove’s crew broke his leg badly on landing in his parachute, and every time he grimaced in pain during the all-day hikes, Musgrove was grateful that all he could complain about was hunger, the occasional thirst, and being tired. #3 The villagers helping the downed American airmen were risking their lives. If caught helping the Americans, they would be executed just as the Germans had already done to thousands of Yugoslavians for resisting the Nazi invasion. #4 When the Americans arrived, they were greeted by a man on horseback who spoke perfect English. You made it. You’re here, he said. There’s going to be a rescue. There are already about two hundred Americans here. They’ve been assembling since January.

Summary of The Forgotten 500 Book Excerpt:

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. P.S. The Forgotten 500 is an extremely interesting book about the most amazing rescue that happened in WWII. P.P.S. It was Albert Einstein who famously said that once you stop learning, you start dying. It was Bill Gates who said that he would want the ability to read faster if he could only have one superpower in this world.
