Red Death Over China

Red Death Over China Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Heroes, honor and impossible odds. American pilot John Hampton is an in-between—he stands for nothing definite, cares about nothing, and knows nothing he wants.

Owing allegiance to no nation, Hampton hires himself on as a pilot in the midst of China's civil war. On one side is Chiang Kai-shek and, on the other, the army of Mao Tse-tung—for whom he now works.

But after his gunner is killed in a dogfight, Hampton's once devil-may-care attitude starts to change. When he rescues a captain with dispatches vital to the Chinese cause, Hampton is told the tale of the Red Pagoda, a lesson of life-and-death choices. Hampton's education proves pivotal—with an immense and deciding battle set to unfold, its outcome strangely lies in his hands. ALSON INCLUDES THE ADVENTURE STORIES "THE CRATE KILLER" AND "WINGS OVER ETHIOPIA"

"Highly recommended for aviation action/adventure pulp fiction." —Midwest Book Review

Synopsis:

It is one of the greatest conflicts—and a pivotal turning point—in history…the Chinese civil war. The outcome is in the hands of one American pilot, John Hampton, a man who, like Bogart in Casablanca, couldn’t care less… But just as this is a critical moment in time, so, too, is it about to become a defining moment in Hampton’s life. What is it that makes him see that there are things, other than money, that are worth fighting—and maybe even dying—for? The surprising answers spur him to undertake the ultimate mission in Red Death Over China.

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
