Ten men. One plane. One mission: fly deep into the heart of Nazi Germany, deliver their bombs, and return
Known respectfully as "The Old Man," 26-year-old Captain Mike Perry is commanding a B-17 heavy
bomber - the legendary Flying Fortress - over the war torn skies of Europe. He and his crew have been
together for 18 missions, desperately hoping to survive until mission 25, and their ticket home.
But as each new operation takes the crew of the Red Light Lady deeper into Hitler’s heavily defended
Fortress Europe, they can no longer afford to think of the future but must live one day at a time.
On mission 19, the luck of the Red Light Lady runs out. Hit by deadly flak, their flaming ship plummeting to
earth from 20,000 feet, they are forced to bail out.
Separated, alone, and uncertain if they're in friendly territory or behind enemy lines, each decision they
make on their harrowing journey toward home can mean the difference between freedom or capture… or
Can the streetwise kid from LA stand toe-to-toe with the German Wehrmacht? Can the simple country boy
from Louisiana match wits with the ruthless SS Major? Will the "Old Man" be able to bring the remnants of
his tattered crew back home?
I will be giving 50% of the sales from the ebook version of Shattered Sky to the great people at the Fisher House Foundation. They do a lot of good for those who serve us in the military. Below is a little more information about The Fisher House Foundation and click on the log to lean more.
About Fisher House
Fisher House Foundation is best known for the network of comfort homes built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. The Fisher Houses are 5,000 to 16,800 square-foot homes, donated to the military and Department of Veterans Affairs, where families can stay while a loved one is receiving treatment. Additionally, the Foundation ensures that families of service men and women wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan are not burdened with unnecessary expense during a time of crisis.
Located in close proximity to the medical center or hospital it serves, each Fisher House consists of between 8 and 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, spacious dining room and an inviting living room with a library and toys for children. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is no fee to stay in a Fisher House. Since inception, the program has saved military and veteran families an estimated $165 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
Fisher House Foundation operates the Hero Miles Program, using donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members. To date, Hero Miles has provided over 24,000 airline tickets to our military and their families. The Foundation also manages a grant program that supports other military charities and scholarship funds for military children, spouses and children of fallen and disabled veterans.
