Take a moment today to listen to a D-Day vet's story, while you still can.
In my just-released novel My Enemy's Enemy, Smithsonian fledgling aviation historian Cass Gooding’s boss challenges her to unearth the story behind a World War II aviation relic, before the people who can tell its story die. Cass's quest exposes more than she bargained for: An explosive secret that may still shake the world, and cost a million lives, including her own.
This ground-attack version DeHavilland Mosquito was photographed on D-Day Eve being armed, and painted with "Invasion Stripes," that would distinguish friendly planes from foes during the impending battle. A Mosquito figures heavily in My Enemy's Enemy.
