    Out of the Desert

    Out of the Desert by John Blundell is an exciting personal account of the experiences of an American hero during World War II. The book provides insider information about a strategic air battle that played a key role in turning the tide of the war in Europe. The accounts of Mr. Blundell¿s experiences are told in away that made me feel as if I were hearing them from an old and trusted friend. I was also fascinated by the author¿s encounters with world leaders, and celebrities. I found it very difficult to put the book down.

    A Story That's Time It Was To Be Told

    I just finished reading 'out of the Desert'. I read it from cover to cover and word for word. I could hardly put it down, except to eat and sleep some. I really enjoyed it. It was also inspirational as well. It tells of a brave group of fine Americans, who gave all, at a time when it meant something to be a patriot. Even when a dog named Alex played an important role
