You'll experience amazing tales of dangerous airfield maneuvers, remotely piloted aircraft and drones, bringing a dead aircraft back to life, and communicating from air to ground in enemy territory.

Travel into the past with gripping accounts of combat missions in World War II and Korea, a firsthand account of the Bay of Pigs invasion, and the terrors of enemy ordnance falling on American soil. Learn about heroic pilots who become astronauts, and how the wounded recover from the horrors of war.

Excellent listening for aviation buffs!

If you could sum up Wings of Valor: Real-Life Aviation Adventures in War and Peace in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, adventurous, & educational

What other book might you compare Wings of Valor: Real-Life Aviation Adventures in War and Peace to and why?

I would compare Wings of Valor to many different great aviation books I've read over the years. Some of the stories about unique bomb types were very intriguing.

What does Jack Clancy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Clancy is passionate about the material and has good skills building the characters. He makes more a great listen!

Do Not Bother - A Collection of Snippets

Any additional comments?

This is just a collection of emailed questions and miscellaneous stories that turn out to be mostly harmless. There are 1 or 2 decent ones in there but it supplies about 15 minutes of pleasure and about an hour and a half of pain.

Great Variety!

I really enjoyed Wings of Valor. Each story had a unique setting and twist. Taken together they paint a picture of the brave and innovative men and women involved in aviation. Jack's read brought it all to life and kept me in the moment.
