Embittered by past failures and broken dreams, American fighter pilot David Duane believes in but one cause—his own. Europe is at war, and he’ll fight it for a price, selling his deadly flying skills to the highest bidder.
Just as Bogart came to Casablanca to escape his past, Duane has come to the icy white wastes of Scandinavia to wage a private war in the skies. But he’s about to take off on a flight and undertake an unforgettable journey—On Blazing Wings—to a place beyond the imagination . . . leading to a revelation that will open his eyes and his heart.
In a world divided by war, Duane discovers that sometimes you have to make a choice, and that making the wrong one could cost him the woman he loves. . . .
American David Duane long ago gave up his dream of being a professional artist. Instead, there’s something else he’s good at, something that countries will pay good money for—his services as an ace fighter pilot on sale to any country whose business is war, regardless of its politics. Duane’s cold-edged neutrality takes him to Finland—combating Russian Communists bent on destroying a supply base. After leading multiple attacks against the Russians and pushing them further and further back, his luck runs out when his plane is shot down. Instead of crashing in flames, Duane finds himself in an elusive netherworld—a mystery-enshrouded city of luxury and golden minarets. There, Duane discovers his true destiny, one that he half-remembers but must struggle to reject in order to save the woman he loves—a woman who happens to be an officer . . . in the Russian ranks.
Another pulp fiction from L. Ron Hubbard. I just can’t stay away!
I was slightly bored with the beginning of this one, but it definitely picked up shortly after it started.
I loved the concept of the book about David trying to change his fate even though it was already written and he was destined for a certain path.
There was war and romance.
Another easy, but delightful read by L. Ron Hubbard!
