From the page: Charlie Brown
...I always thought it was Snoopy who flew planes.
But to everyone saying "this is honor / this is humanity in the face of war" -- I'm sorry, but isn't the point of war to dehumanize and kill the enemy? Did Brown and his crew return to combat, flying later missions? I'm sure they did. A B-17 is a BOMBER; by definition it kills indiscriminately.
Stigler likely killed more men by escorting Brown and his remaining crew to return to England. He certainly committed treason by providing aid and comfort to the enemy. If he had left them to their fate, he would have been behaving as a soldier.
War is inherently inhuman. Recognize that, and don't fight, or do everything you have to.
