Sabaton History Episode 16 – Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler

Heroism isn’t always measured in blood or danger. Sometimes, to spare your foe is the honourable thing to do. A dramatic example comes in the shape of the American Charlie Brown and German Franz Stigler.

Brown was flying his heavily damaged B17 ‘Flying Fortress’ bomber home after a demanding bombing run on Bremen when Franz Stigler in his fighter plane caught sight of its tail.

This story is about the encounter between the two enemies and the song that we wrote about it, called ‘No Bullets Fly’.
