Richard Bong: America's #1 Ace Fighter Pilot of World War II

The heroic true story of Major Richard Bong, America's top fighter pilot ace of World War II

Arriving as a fresh US Army Air Forces pilot in New Guinea in late 1942, Richard Bong wasted no time taking on the Japanese, shooting down two planes in an early skirmish-an action that earned him a Silver Star. Over the next two years, Bong would amass the US armed forces' most impressive record of aerial victories not only of WWII but in history, surpassing even the great Eddie Rickenbacker's World War I tally. In December 1944, he was personally awarded the Medal of Honor by General Douglas MacArthur. Don Keith's latest non-fiction work recounts the previously untold and compelling personal story of this true but little-known American hero.

An international crisis in eastern Russia has the US Navy racing to avoid a nuclear apocalypse.

The Sea of Okhotsk north of the Japanese Home Islands is an unforgiving place. Far from Mother Russia, beyond Siberia, it is a mostly cold, forgotten land. It is here that the Children of the Gulags-descendants of those locked away in the infamous Soviet prison camps-are now convinced they can carve out and lay claim there to a homeland of their own. But they must fan the flames of international tension among the Chinese, North Koreans, the Russians, and the Americans, pitting them all against each other as the Children attempt to wrest away their new nation from Russia.

Forced into a game of intrigue and sinister political maneuvering, Chief of Naval Intelligence Jon Ward must find a way to utilize stealthy US submarines, SEALs, and other assets to extinguish a conflict at the edge of the world-all while trying to give hope to an historically oppressed people in their own dream of freedom. But a dream that could become a nightmare if one wrong move ignites a nuclear war.

The eighth book in the critically acclaimed HUNTER KILLER SERIES, SNAPSHOT is a riveting military thriller packed with high-stakes action.
