THE LAST RAIDER
Book 1 of the Carl Bridger trilogy
Former WWII B-25 pilot and retired CIA Station Chief Carl Bridger is called back to action in 1994 during the Bosnian-Serbian war as he learns that his grandson’s F-14 Tomcat has been downed by a Serb missile. Lieutenant Cody Bridger and his Radar Intercept Officer have been taken prisoner by a ruthless and sadistic Serbian army colonel. Carl learns that the White House and the Navy are not planning a rescue due to the political climate, and it’s up to Carl and a few of his old WWII bomber crew to fly Carl’s refurbished B-25 on a daring rescue mission of their own. Cody has a gun to his head and time is critical. The challenge: to arm Carl’s old bomber - the last of the Doolittle Raiders - and get her airworthy in time to fly half-way around the world to save his grandson.
Fly with Carl Bridger and the famed “Air Apaches” of the 345th Bombardment Group as he and the crew of Avenging Angel take on the Imperial Japanese Air Force. Inspired by the true mission logs of the 501st Black Panthers. Share the heartache of witnessing friends falling victim to a fierce, determined, and well-armed enemy. Fly with the 345th from Tacloban Airfield on Leyte Island, to San Marceleno, Clark Field, and Ie Shima, Okinawa as the most famous B-25 Mitchell unit in the Pacific Theater of Operations fights its way to the islands of Japan itself. Live the experiences of American families who endured sacrifice, hardship, and tragedy at home, with only hope and their faith to get them through the most grievous global conflict in modern warfare.
