Climb into the cockpit with Dust Bowl farm boy Lance Roark as he arrives in England commanding a B-17 Flying Fortress at the height of World War II. A prologue, 2017's Will Rogers Medallion Gold Medal winner, Shortgrass, set the stage for young Lance as he made the crucial decision following the bombing of Pearl Harbor to depart from the pacifist doctrine of his Mennonite upbringing and go to war. Now, still cheerful and pious, he and his best friend, famed Oklahoma Sooner Waddy Young, tackle a new opponent - history's most fearsome air armada, the German Luftwaffe, which has bested every other force that has dared confront them.
Audacious, cool under fire, and a born aviator, Lance piles up the missions and decorations and somehow survives to complete his tour of duty - barely. Even as he gains renown as a relentless air warrior, though, his lifelong faith is shaken as the body count of those around him mounts. Driven by a desire for vengeance against his enemies, he turns down service back Stateside to return to battle in one of America's sensational new P-51 Mustang fighter planes.
As the greatest aerial war in history rages in the skies over bleeding Europe, Lance hits a low-point in his life just as a terrifying new adversary appears to challenge him. Pushed to the breaking point, he will need every bit of skill and experience he can muster in an unforgettable showdown over Dresden in the war's most legendary air raid.

A powerful story of war and redemption
Just finished listening to this moving story of a common man from the farm torn by the ravages of war and death as he flies his way through the war-filled skies of Europe. What a compelling tale of loss and ultimately victory of the heart!

A tad slow and more like a romance novel
More a romance novel, not much action, I rather watch grass grow than reading again.
