Last of the Aerial Gunfighters is an epic, earthy story of fighter pilots. The stark reality of living in harms way make the novel an excellent read for those who want to relive or examine what makes pilots tick. It puts the reader in the cockpit in the early days of jets when pilots still flew the airplane - and not the computer.A love story is woven around the combat events as lonely separation tempts both John and his wife, Sylvia.

On R&R in the Japanes Alps, John meets Sandra, a nurse from Tokyo. Its love at first sight, but Sandra wont sleep with a married man. Later Sandra saves his life after he escapes from North Korea.Testimonials by -Dr.
