Hanging in the balance were the lives of more than 1200 Allied airmen who had crashed or bailed out over Romania and were now trapped in the midst of a war hundreds of miles from friendly territory. Dire action was needed to settle the dire situation. The senior American airman came up with a plan to be flown to Italy aboard a Romanian Air Force airplane, and his arrival there triggered one of history's great and novel mass evacuations.
The late American fighter ace Robert J. Goebel wrote the definitive account of Operation Reunion, and it is proudly presented here.

One of the Most Detailed Accounts
Would you listen to Operation Reunion again? Why?
Yes, it's the most concise and detailed account of the effort that I've encountered
Who was your favorite character and why?
The Romanian fighter pilot (I won't try to spell his name) who liaised between the Romanian forces and the Fifteenth Air Force. He seemed charismatic, skilled, resourceful and genuinely committed to saving the American POWs.
Have you listened to any of Gary Goebel’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Mr. Goebel is not a professional narrator or actor, but rather is a retired fighter pilot. His father was a renowned Mustang ace and also the author of this work. Mr. Goebel's performance is workmanlike. His voice is not dramatic, but it is clear and more than adequate to tell this story well. His effort to get this story out to a greater audience is commendable.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It's just less than an hour in length, so it was easy to do.
Any additional comments?
This is not a long story, but at the price, it was worth it to me.
