On June 2, 1995, U.S. Air Force Captain Scott O'Grady was helping enforce the NATO no-fly zone in the skies over Bosnia when a Soviet-made antiaircraft missile slammed into his F-16. With the aircraft exploding around him, O'Grady desperately grabbed his ejection handle and pulled. Five miles up and traveling at 350 miles per hour, O'Grady had escaped certain death. But his ordeal was just beginning. Return with Honor is the incredible true-life thriller of one man's fierce struggle to survive in the hostile territory of war-torn Bosnia, told in his own words. For six days and nights Scott O'Grady eluded the Bosnian Serbs who relentlessly hunted him. At times his pursuers stood five feet from his hiding places, guns at the ready, listening for the slightest sound. Yet O'Grady never gave in, relying on his survival training, cunning, and deep faith in God to evade capture and establish contact with the comrades-in-arms who could pull him out. Here, in never-before-revealed detail, is the amazing story of how,O'Grady managed to live through a missile impact at 27,000 feet, the techniques he used to survive in a barren and hostile landscape, and the real story behind the daring daylight rescue mission carried out by the U.S. Marines.
