Synopsis

On Wings of Eagles is the account of an incredible rescue by a Green Beret colonel and a group of corporate executives hastily trained into a fighting team. When Ross Perot, millionaire head of the Dallas-based company EDS, discovered that two of his key men in Iran had been jailed, he turned to the one man in America who could help. Colonel ‘Bull’ Simons, famed World War II and Vietnam commando, agreed to do what the US government could not – go in and get the men out.

This is the stuff of Follet’s fiction – a secret penetration into a dangerous territory; a dramatic jailbreak; a harrowing overland escape to the Turkish border – and all the more extraordinary because it is fact.
