Product description

Product Description

World War II is raging. A young father must choose between his family and duty to his country- a decision that could cost him everything.

Based on actual experiences of United States veterans and official military aviation history records from World War II, this is the thrilling story of a family’s journey into war. While his loved ones struggle with shortages and rationing at home, Sam endures relentless Japanese attacks against his unarmed aircraft over the treacherous mountains and torrid jungles of Asia. His job is to drop supplies to Merrill’s Marauders and over 750,000 allied soldiers fighting in the perilous jungles of Burma. If the enemy is not stopped, the American way of life will end.

If you like non-stop action with a touch of humor and romance and the chance to learn about the “forgotten front” of WWII, then this is the book for you.

Buy KICKER today and find out how the “Greatest Generation” earned its reputation.

Comments from readers of Kicker:

“I could not put this book down, as the story of Sam, the young volunteer and aspiring pilot, unfolds. The author delivers his story telling with a rich back drop of historical details reflecting a thoroughly researched knowledge of the subject matter.”  Elray

“Would recommend this not only to history buffs and WWII aficionados (like myself) but to any reader interested in being transported to another time and place, one that shaped all of our lives and fortunes today, worldwide.”  W.M. Driscoll

” What an interesting story! I learned so much about heroes not mentioned in history books.”  JacquieRhoades

“History made real through the telling of one soldier's story. This book made me miss my father and all of the stories he never told me. ”  Linda S. Browning

“Hoover leaves nothing out. He shows the sacrifices made on the battle front, as well as sacrifices made on the home front.”  Candi Silk
