The author of the acclaimed Vietnam series sets his sights on World War II.

Theo has always looked up to his older brother, Hank, but never more so than the day Hank enlisted in the US Navy. Not to be outdone, Theo followed his older brother’s lead in joining the war effort — but preferring the wide open sky to the untamed ocean, Theo chose to serve with the Army Air Force.

As a gunner on a B-24 Liberator, Theo is enthusiastic about his crew’s mission to save all of Europe from the Nazis. Fearlessness is a requirement for dog fights at 50,000 feet. But when Theo’s brother goes missing in the Pacific, fear start creeping in. Can Theo keep his head in the game while he awaits word of his brother’s fate?

“All the sizzle, chaos, noise and scariness of war is clay in the hands of ace storyteller Lynch.” —Kirkus

“Though aimed at younger readers, Lynch doesn’t write down, instead offering a powerful taste of war on a personal level.” —Publishers Weekly
