In a few days it will be Christmas, 1941. The US has just joined the war, but only a few American volunteers have reached England yet. The Royal Air Force still fights a lonely battle against the Luftwaffe bombers, as they have for two years. One of the veterans of that fight, pilot Nigel Turner, is back after a bad injury, his body mostly healed but his spirit gravely hurt. His brother is dead, his mother is dead, and nearly all his friends are dead. His hands tremble when he lights a cigarette. He flies, defending London against the bombers, and waits for what seems inevitable – his own death in the sky. But a Christmas miracle is about to happen to this brave, almost-broken man. Read on… And after you finish, you may want to read the two sequels. Part Two: In London is filled with intense air combat action praised by veteran pilots as some of the best ever written -- and a holiday in blacked-out London. Part Three: In Cairo takes Nigel to the North African desert war, where he plays a crucial role just before the battle of El Alamein. Both are available on Amazon Kindle.
