Overview

From the author of Apprentice Warrior comes a story of the odds a special breed of men faced when air battle first came of age: wings and engines that fell apart without warning; guns that jammed; toxic fumes, nausea, noise, vibration, g-forces, frostbite, windburn, fear, insomnia and chronic exhaustion. In this story David Harrison surmounts these odds to meet the two great tests of battle: leaving home to search for his warrior self and his struggle to return home after he finds it.
