About this title


From the pen of a former combat Glider Ace who lived to tell this tale about the expendable Glider Gladiators. It presents World War II from the Glider Pilot viewpoint. It describes from first hand experience the biographies of several characteristic Glider Gladiators. It discloses their love affairs, personal anecdotes, rigid-training, and military air-ground missions, up to and including the allied invasion of Sicily. Cleverly interwoven into this glider odyssey is the thrilling story of two opposing Glider Gladiator Champions who were fated to meet in hand-to-hand combat in the Colosseum at Syracuse, Sicily.
