I did not know the story of "Operation Cowboy" and the rescue of the magnificent Lippizaners from the Czech/German border at the end of the war. This is a very suspenseful adventure, not for the faint of heart! And the best part is that THIS is the real story, and it really did happen! I'm always thankful to the authors who do the work to make sure these gems of WWII do not disappear from our knowledge. The courage, the tenacity, the many heroes of that time -- Saaaaaa-lute!
