“Will Harry survive?”
This is the story of a broken warrior – a warrior victorious in battle but broken and defeated in peace!
It tells how a man wins a great victory in combat, and then loses life as he knows it as a result.
For Harry, being a fighter pilot and flying the F-15C fighter plane on Combat Air Patrol over the Iraq-Iran border was the epitome of success. After his wing man is shot down, he finds he must test his abilities and training when faced with overwhelming odds yet decides to engage his enemies in air-to-air combat against overwhelming odds.
Harry must decide how to deal with figures out how to deal with incoming eight state-of-the-art Su-27 Iranian fighters. Many reviewers have described this story as the best description of air-to-air combat they have read.
Many readers have commented this book places them in the cockpit of a United States fighter jet in air combat; this is essentially the story of the air battle to end all all battles and the human consequences of that battle.
In the aftermath, Harry discovers he must dig deep to learn how to fight and survive in the battlegrounds of life. . . Will he?
In this story, Harry faces the most difficult demons of his life. It is a multiple front personal war with demons from a deep past haunting him and some nice newly minted demons resulting from the glory of survival.
The questions are “Will Harry survive?” and/or, more importantly, “Will Harry prevail?”
The author hopes, if you decide to purchase and read this story, you will appreciate the broken warrior. Not just Harry, but the thousands and thousands of veterans who have served our country faithfully and are dealing with their own issues. Though their travail, they all remain proud of the service they provided their country. They are the true warriors. We continue to pray they will not merely survive but will prevail. We owe them that much and more!
“It’s almost like a flight simulator in book format by LJ”
This was a deeply emotional read for me, and one that I read straight through in a matter of hours. As far as the aviation theme of the book, I could really imagine myself being there in the cockpit of the plane, experiencing everything that the pilot did. It’s almost like a flight simulator in book format.
But the emotional elements of the story really hooked me to the story equally. Harry’s story was such that I felt a great deal of empathy for what he was going through. Even though I have no military experience, I can really appreciate (and really relate at some level) to what this brave warrior endured, both in the cockpit and out of it. This is a great tale well worth reading!
