What People Are Saying:

Greene has breathed life into words scrawled on pages seven decades passed, making them as relevant and compelling today as they were back then.”  – Marilyn Jeffers Walton (Historian; Writer of 3 WWII Best Sellers)

With his thirst for accuracy and dogged tenacity, Ross Greene has woven these findings into a compelling story… It’s a beautiful read.” – Edouard Reniere (Master Historian and Researcher for The Comet Line. Brussels, Belgium)

“A FORTRESS and a LEGACY is a splendid book… authentic narrative. Monumental research… excellent writing and story line” – Colonel Claire W Potter (Retired Pilot in WWII, Korea and Vietnam)

I have written more than two-dozen books on the aircraft and airmen who prosecuted WWII for the Allies, so I have a pretty good sense of when authors of the period ‘get it right.’ In so doing, Ross has challenged me and stretched my memory numerous times. His finished work makes both of our efforts worthwhile.” – Ron MacKay (Historian and Renowned writer of more than two dozen WWII books)

Greene is to be commended for your dedication to searching and researching to write such a remarkable work.” – Judy Wray Zachary (Avid Reader)

At one point he was asked if a woman would read this, and I can say definitely yes! I love true stories that come from the war, and this one resonated with me. Bud Perrin was a wonderful man …. Great book and highly recommended!!” – Ann Kirihara
