On Wings of Eagles is the thrilling novel based on the incredible real-life rescue of two Americans by a Green Beret colonel and a group of corporate executives from revolutionary Iran, from number one bestseller Ken Follett.

As Iran descends into revolution two Americans get caught up in the upheaval. Captured, they are held in a heavily fortified prison fortress. Their situation is desperate, with the US government refusing to get them out.

Hope is, however, not completely lost as their boss, Ross Perot, the millionaire head of EDS, takes it upon himself to organise a rescue attempt. He enlists the aid of a Green Beret, Colonel ‘Bull’ Simons, famed World War II and Vietnam commando, to train his executives for the operation and the fight to come.

A Dangerous Escape
In this gripping account of an incredible real-life rescue, breaking the prisoners out is only the beginning. They must then make a treacherous overland escape to the safety of the Turkish border, even as they are hunted by an enemy who is closing in . . .
