WINGMEN is back in print after a 30-year absence. First published in 1979 by Avon books, this World War II novel, with overtones of From Here to Eternity, was a precursor to the gay romance genre. Jack Hardigan's Hellcat fighter squadron blew the Japanese Zekes out of the blazing Pacific skies. But a more subtle kind of hell was brewing in his feelings for rookie pilot Fred Trusteau. While a beautiful widow pursues Jack, and another pilot becomes suspicious of Jack and Fred's close friendship, the two heroes cut a fiery swath through the skies from Wake Island to Tarawa to Truk, there to keep a fateful rendezvous with love and death in the blood-clouded waters of the Pacific. "...Wingmen is gratifying to read." - The Advocate, November 1, 1979

Review:

''...Wingmen is gratifying to read. It is the sort of book that should have and may have been written right after 1945, the sort of book that should have been published then, too, but of course it could not have been. I don't know what effect it will have on you, but this is probably how it will affect Case's fellow war novelists: Norman Mailer will clench his fists and swear and refuse to believe it, Gore Vidal will say, 'I told you so,' and James Jones will turn over in his grave.'' --The Advocate

''Navy veteran Case's soaring adventure-romance, set with Victory at Sea authenticity against the backdrop of World War II, is a treasure for all fans of historical fiction.'' --Elliott Mackle, author of Captain Harding's Six-Day War

''Such a vivid depiction of pilots in action. You can almost hear the engines and smell the oil.'' --Charlie Cochrane, author of the Cambridge Fellows Mysteries
