Eighty years in the past, Ben Ryan must start again. He learns to live and love, and he plans for a future nobody wants to hear about. Then he meets Howard Hughes, who believes him and forms a consortium comprised of fellow industrialists. They prepare in every way they can without the backing of the US government.
The Japanese learn of their efforts, and move up their plans to attack Pearl Harbor in December 1939, two years earlier than the original history. The consortium learns this, but they're still short of planes, supplies, and pilots.
Is their hard work all for nothing?
The race is on.

For the first half of the book I was put into doubt as to the proficiency
of the author. It seemed to be a half-hearted and repetitive story. Then
it took off and I couldn't put the book down. I stayed up until 11:30PM reading. At that point the action slowed a bit and I went to bed. The next day I finished it after soaking up a towel with my tears. What a book!!! It starts slowly, then controls your interest, then wrings out your emotions!

I really got into this book right from the start and had such a hard time putting it down. I am not an avid reader and have started many books, just to stop reading them after a few chapters, not this one. It draws you in so deep that you just have to see what happens in the next chapter. So looking forward to reading the next book by this great writer.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I won't ruin it for you, but the story in this book involves a lot of America's history of aviation - with a twist. I'm a fan of planes and aviation, and the causes of World war II, so I figured, for $3.98, why not? The story pulled me right in. I felt like I was in a movie, watching it go on all around me. I was caught off guard more than once by the twists it took. I liked it a lot!
This is the first book I've read by J.M. Surra, but if his others are like this, it won't be my last.
I'm kind of a hardass, so I only gave it four stars. But I was tempted to give it five!
I Recommend it.
