Antoine de Saint-Exupery wrote The Little Prince in New York during the last World War just before returning to Europe to fly with the American forces out of Sardinia and Corsica. On July 31, 1944, Saint-Exupery disappeared during his last reconnaissance mission over Southern France. In November 1993, the Pierpont-Morgan Library held an exhibition of the drawings Saint-Exupery made for his American edition of The Little Prince. It is at this ex­hibition that Jean-Pierre de Villers met Wilhelm von Stadde, a former German Luftwaffe pilot who had been flying on that particular day in 1944. The Last Flight of the Little Prince is a vivid and somewhat fantastic account, by von Stadde himself, of what happened over France on July 31, 1944. It is the story of an unusual friendship across enemy lines.
