Publisher's Summary

Seventeen days...the average life expectancy of a British aviator during World War I. Last three weeks and you were practically a veteran. Paul Hyde dropped out of college to join the Royal Flying Corps, looking for a grand adventure. And grand it was, or so he assured himself when planes were crashing all around him. Today is his 17th day. Will he be able to beat the odds?

This Review Needs a Title...So, I...

The 17th Day is short, only a little over an hour long, but it is packed with plenty of action. The author explains that he always wanted to write a WWI story and finally did. The 17th day is a compelling and gripping story of a fighter pilot's life during that conflict. It reads/listens like other exciting novels and the ending is quite touching.

If you're looking for something short it's great!

A short but interesting look into the life of a pilot in The Great War. At $5 or less I would recommend it. I'm a fan of Steven Coonts and while this isn't like most of his other books it's good. While its hard to say how much of an affect the air war had in WWI its good to be reminded of what those brave men went through.
