Captain O'Grady's survival and rescue after being shot down over Bosnia last June is the stuff of legends. His reading is rather unpolished–after all, he's a fighter pilot. However, as the story progresses from his thoughts and emotions at being shot down to his struggle to survive and evade capture, the reading becomes more interesting. He's so honest about his feelings of helplessness and dependence on God, as well as his love of family and country, that one can't help but admire and like the guy. In the end, his unpolished reading enhances the narrative. After all, this is his story, and what a story it is! M.T.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, MaineReview:
Return With Honor is the incredible story of U. S. Air Force Captain Scott O'Grady, who, while helping enforce the NATO No-Fly Zone in Bosnia, managed to survive a missile impact at 27,000 feet and then elude the relentless pursuit of the Bosnian Serbs. An inspiring tale of courage, faith, and patriotism. -- Midwest Book Review
