Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Ace glider pilot Breeze Callahan tries to sell the Navy on using his gliders in the war effort. But Breeze soon has a war on his hands when a ruthless competitor wants the Navy to buy training ships instead, and is willing to use any means of sabotage and betrayal to get the contract.

Synopsis:

Step back in time with this riveting tale of daredevils, pilots and brutal madmen. Ace glider pilot Breeze Callaghan is trying to demonstrate to the Navy the value of gliders and gliding techniques in war. There are two ways Breeze believes they can be used to aid the war effort: they'll keep a plane aloft when engines cut out, and gliders will be able to enter enemy airspace silently—a perfect way to spy undetected.

 

Callahan's ruthless competitor, Badger O'Dowell, has other ideas. Badger's determined to get the Navy to buy his training ships instead. When testing gets underway to prove the mettle of their designs, sabotage and betrayal threaten to destroy not only Callahan's dream of glider flight in war, but also his life.  "Highly recommended for aviation action/adventure pulp fiction fans." —Midwest Book Review

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.
