Summary:

Nous sommes en 1986. Depuis qu’il a frappé la Terre quarante ans plus tôt, le virus Wild Card n’a cessé de se répandre, tuant une grande partie de la population, produisant quelques aces, des êtres aux pouvoirs surnaturels, et beaucoup de jokers, des humains amoindris et difformes. Aujourd’hui confrontés à un ennemi venu des profondeurs de l’espace et à son alliée sur Terre, une secte maçonnique, les héros créés par George R.R. Martin et ses complices (Roger Zelazny, Walter Jon Williams, Pat Cadigan...) ne sont pas au bout de leurs surprises.

Summary:

A riveting account of a modern fighter squadron at war and the exploits, triumphs, and traumas of its pilots. The Black Aces. Their courage, ferocity, and instincts made them legendary in military aviation. Flying F-14 Tomcats, they played as much a part in recent US operations in Kosovo as did any air squadron in the theater, air force or navy, and probably more. Because of its superior performance, sophisticated equipment and the two-man crews who took it upon themselves to do something extra, the Tomcat and its aviators distinguished themselves over and over. Forced to locate Serb fighters operating covertly in a mountainous land much like Afghanistan, with almost no help from ground spotters, VF-14 pilots and backseaters spearheaded new methods for the navy to pinpoint, identify, and destroy enemy troops and weapons. These were tasks that fighter crews had seldom had to do before. The Aces had to break rules and frequently go in harms way in order to be successful. And they performed so well that for the first time in aviation history, a fighter squadron - theirs - was awarded The Wade McClusky Trophy, the navy's premier bombing honor. The award, named for a World War II dive bomber pilot and post-WorldWar II admiral, had been won previously only by bombing squadrons. Robert Wilcox spent two weeks with The Black Aces aboard the aircraft carrier USS Roosevelt and here provides a long-awaited, never-before-seen glimpse into the world of a modern navy fighter squadron. Wilcox takes readers into the cockpits as the pilots go out and attack targets while avoiding anti-aircraft weaponry. He takes us into the war room as they plan their strikes and into their cabins as they contemplate the danger they are facing. And the reader can't help but worry for these men as they head off into battle, can't help sitting on the edge of the seat as they try to land at night, in a rainstorm, with waves crashing against the ship, and can't help ducking with them as they dodge missile attacks. And in the end, it is impossible not to feel for these aviators as they question their own courage, or to cheer for them when they finally return safely. Black Aces High is a story of fear and courage, mishap and success, fighting spirit and military innovation. It's a human story that goes behind the smiling, sunglass-wearing facade of aviators flashing a "V", the sterile, slow motion target video that has become a staple of Pentagon briefings, and the rock 'n' roll cowboy image of fighter crews seen in the movies. Instead, it is a story that shows who these aviators really are and what they do beyond what we know, a story which probably will be repeated again and again as our carriers continue to be deployed in the new, 21 century war our nation is fighting.

Summary:

Capturing the hearts of a beleaguered nation, the fighter pilots of World War II engaged in a kind of battle that became the stuff of legend. They cut through the sky in their P-38s to go one-on-one against the enemy—and those who survived the deadly showdowns with enough courage and skill earned the right to be called aces. But two men in particular rose to become something more. They became icons of aerial combat, in a heroic rivalry that inspired a weary nation to fight on. Richard “Dick” Bong was the bashful, pink-faced farm boy from the Midwest. Thomas “Tommy” McGuire was the wise-cracking, fast-talking kid from New Jersey. What they shared was an unparalleled gallantry under fire which won them both the Medal of Honor—and remains the subject of hushed and reverent conversation wherever aerial warfare is admired. What they had between them was a closely watched rivalry to see who would emerge as the top-scoring American ace of the war. What they left behind is a legacy of pride we will never forget, and a record of aerial victories that has yet to be surpassed anywhere in the world.

Summary:

In this fourth issue of Aces High, we deal with the Mediterranean Theater of Operations (MTO) during WWII. Bearing in mind that it would be impossible to cover the aircraft of all the nations which fought in this area, in just one issue, we have this time decided to focus on just Luftwaffe and Royal Air Force subjects. We have chosen the most iconic machines used by the greatest pilots: a Spitfire Mk.Vb, with its distinctive Vokes tropical filter; a Kittyhawk Mk.I, wearing the famous sharkmouth nose marking; a Bf 109 F-4 trop, finished as the mount of the legendary ace, Hans-Joachim Marseille; a Beaufighter Mk.VIF, with a slightly more unusual desert night-fighter scheme, and a Bf 110 E-2 trop, which served as fighter, bomber and ground attack aircraft. To complement our aircraft builds, we include step-by-step articles which show you how to paint a pilot figure, and a half-tracked truck.

Summary:

The ten stories in "Aces High" take you from the flak-blasted night sky over Germany to the sweltering heat of the tropics, twisting and turning like a Typhoon with a Focke Wolf in its sights! When War Picture Library was launched in 1958 it quickly became apparent that many of the most popular stories with the readers featured the adventures of the warriors of the air, pilots who soared and swooped through the sky, cannons and machine guns blazing. The flyers were seen as the glamour boys of the Second World War, handling the most sophisticated and technically advanced combat machines ever invented and there was almost limitless scoped to develop stories based around their exploits. The machines that they flew - fighters such as Spitfires, Hurricanes, Messerschmitts, Mustangs and Zeros were lovingling recreated by the Air Ace artists, when the new Air Ace Picture Library appeared in 1960. Those images are reproduced here 25 per cent larger than in their original published form, pulling you into close formation in the thick of the action. The ten stories in Aces High take you from the flak-blasted night sky over Germany to the sweltering heat of the tropics, twisting and turning like a Typhoon with a Focke Wolf in its sights!

Summary:

New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper weaves a tale of betrayal and second chances as two lovers torn apart by deception team up for one last mission. Recruited as a spy out of college, Katrina Keller learned to use every asset at her disposal to ferret out sensitive information for the Americans. But after her cover was partially blown, the love of her life—another federal agent—left under the impression that she had betrayed their country. In response, Katrina buried her pain and sought refuge in a low-key operation run out of an amusement park. Then, just as Katrina thinks she’s really moved on, Skye Prescott crosses her path once again. Skye never recovered from Katrina’s betrayal. Hiding in the shadows, he turned himself into a reckless, ruthless force of nature. But when his supposedly piece-of-cake mission thrusts Katrina back into his life, he quickly realizes he made a terrible mistake by leaving her without digging for the truth first. Skye’s nature demands swift action. Nothing gets in his way when he decides what he wants. And now not even Katrina’s protests will stop him from winning her back. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
