From combat to commercial flight, Wings of Valor contains 17 rollercoaster rides through air and space. Strap in and fly along with courageous men and women in today's combat aircraft. You'll experience amazing tales of dangerous airfield maneuvers, remotely piloted aircraft and drones, bringing a dead aircraft back to life, and communicating from air to ground in enemy territory.
Travel into the past with gripping accounts of combat missions in World War II and Korea, a firsthand account of the Bay of Pigs invasion, and the terrors of enemy ordnance falling on American soil. Learn about heroic pilots who become astronauts, and how the wounded recover from the horrors of war. Also included are vignettes about airplanes that have been converted into restaurants, restoring classic aircraft, and things you didn't know about airport security procedures.

Excellent listening for aviation buffs!
Interesting, adventurous, & educational
I would compare Wings of Valor to many different great aviation books I've read over the years. Some of the stories about unique bomb types were very intriguing.
Clancy is passionate about the material and has good skills building the characters. He makes more a great listen!
I highly recommend this book!
