  • The Forgotten 500

    This is an excellent read. A fast paced page turner. Gregory Freeman takes time to explain the political situation of the past in Yugoslavia and how it relates to the present while narrating one heck of a true life adventure story. This previously untold story of risk, heroism, danger, luck, and success is proof that truth is far more interesting than fiction. A person would have a difficulty time inventing these events. Buy this book and read it. You will be entertained and will learn a lot about a part of the world that most US residents don't really understand. Hopefully someone will make this into a movie.
