The third in Shanle's aviator trilogy, End Game takes the reader to the climactic battles of WWII in the Pacific and European Theaters. A retired Naval Aviator (fighter pilot) and former Paratrooper, Shanle puts readers in the cockpit as hundreds of aircraft engage in the biggest and deadliest dog fights in history. Storm the beaches of Pacific Islands with the Marines, parachute into France with the Army Airborne. Stand on the decks of the USS Johnston as the tiny Destroyer charges an entire Imperial Japanese Fleet, by itself. While facing down the enemy, these same men and women hold together families and try to safeguard a small sense of normality inside a whirlwind of death and destruction.

From the Author:

I'm one of the lucky few; my occupation is my passion.  A few years ago I was flying a training mission at twilight off the coast of Southern California. The Hale-Bopp comet was blazing overhead. I decided to get a better look; dumping the nose of my F-4N Phantom II, I held it at zero g as I shoved the throttles to full afterburner.  With no induced drag on the aircraft, the J79-GE-8 engines very quickly pushed the jet supersonic.  Leveling at 35,000, its best energy addition altitude, I let the Phantom run up to 1.5 Mach and then began a climb.

Burying the needle of the VSI above it's 6,000 feet per minute climb limit, the Phantom ascended toward the peeking stars. I should have leveled at 50,000 feet, the limit without a pressure suit, but I didn't.
Above me the stars were coming alive for the night, below me was the ocean, glistening in the pastel color of a sun just set.  Glancing to the east, the coast and San Diego; the city's lights brighter than the emerging stars.  To the west the curvature of the earth was accentuated by the dark ocean against back lit sky.

Finally I looked up to the moon and watched as the Hale-Bopp Comet streaked the sky, just below it.  I wondered how I could share this; and some of the other amazing and horrific things I've seen in a life of aviation. I have since tried through: film, video, and mostly the written word.

From the Back Cover:

Lieutenant Commander, USN (Ret.) Leland Shanle puts you in the cockpit, in the air, and in the line of fire.                                         ENDGAMEThe third in Shanle's aviator trilogy, End Game takes the reader to the climactic battles of WWII in the Pacific and European Theaters. A retired Naval Aviator (fighter pilot) and former paratrooper, Shanle puts readers in the cockpit as hundreds of aircraft engage in the biggest and deadliest dog fights in history. Storm the beaches of Pacific Islands with the Marines, parachute into France with the Army Airborne. Stand on the decks of the USS Johnston as the tiny Destroyer charges an entire Imperial Japanese Fleet, by itself. While facing down the enemy, these same men and women hold together families and try to safeguard a small sense of normality inside of a whirlwind of death and destruction.                PRAISE FOR PROJECT & ALPHA AND VENGEANCE"I very much enjoyed LCDR Shanle's second installment of the fighting in the Pacific during WWII. As a former Navy fighter pilot, I particularly enjoyed being taken back to my own early days of U.S. Navy flight training and the thrill and exhilaration of flying high performance aircraft. I find the author's combination of accurate technical descriptions along with the human drama a unique and enjoyable blend not often found in a piece of history based fiction. I eagerly await Shanle's next effort!" - Dane Dobbs, 767 Captain"This is an excellent story concerning this forgotten and misunderstood area of WWII. Describing the heroic and disturbing times of American Airline aviators flying combat missions" - BobCard, AeroScale"As an airline captain and a former check-airman, I was excited to find an aviation novel that is fun to read and technically accurate! On top of that, I learned a few things about World War II as this novel is Historical Fiction and Mr. Shanle's characters interact with real people, places, and events. It's a job well done and a real page turner." - Mark L Berry, MD80 CaptainendgameCover art courtesy of Ron Cole, Coles Aircraft colesaircraft.com Cover design by Kristina Blank Makansitreehousepublishinggroup.com
