SYNOPSIS

HWELTE - World War II aviation book on Russian women fighter pilots

“The Old West collides with World War II.”

HWELTE - World War II aviation book on Russian women fighter pilots

In Roy McShane's second installment of his trilogy, HWELTE, bomber pilot First Lieutenant Chuck Hewitt returns home wounded from Stalingrad, in 1943, to his parents ranch at Flagstaff, Arizona.  He's a broken man looking for answers - ultimately finding those answers in the extraordinary history of his white grandfather's and Navajo grandmother's struggle to forge a life together against all odds in the 1880s.

Inspired by his grandparent's hardships, Chuck decides to get back in the war and transfers into fighters. He eventually winds up in England, in 1944, with the 354th Fighter Group - the first group to fly and fight over Europe in the new, revolutionary P-51 Mustang. Whereupon, after his initial mission escorting B-17s over Germany, Chuck makes a startling discovery about the common denominator fighter pilots and bomber pilots share:  They are all condemned men living on death row.
