Synopsis

He is the last hope of ravaged America!

THE SPIRIT OF FREEDOM

The chiling nightmare of nuclear holocaust has reduced the U.S. to a war-blackened wasteland of radioactive rubble. But from the ashes of a once-great land, a fearless, top-gun fighter pilot has risen to take to the skies. He is Hawk Hunter, known to the enemies of freedom as "Wingman", and he has sworn to restore America to her former glory—at the risk of his own liberty and life!

The diabolical forces of the Asian Mercenary Cult have been defeated. For the first time in years, America is free of foreign tyranny. But the threat is not over. The tattered remains of the evil army have now sailed west and turned their guns towards the vulnerable peoples of Southeast Asia, where liberty and democracy are still struggling to survive. Answering a distress call from a country about to be crushed under the heel of an oppression worse than long-gone communism, Hawk Hunter and his allies amass the First American Expeditionary Air Fleet and fly halfway around the world to fight a fierce battle to the death—and to strike one final, bloody blow for a forgotten dream called freedom!

Excerpt

THEY SEEMED TO COME OUT OF NOWHERE...

...four MiG-25 Foxbats flying fast and high. Hawk Hunter quickly identified the MiGs' strategy.

"They're chicken bastards," he yelled back to the gun crew. "They wouldn't know fair fight if they fell into it. All weapon bays... activate!"

Two MiGs came into together, their sights lined up on the fat part of the Bozo's left side fuselage.

Hunter counted to three, then yelled: "All engagement weapons... fire!"

Instantly, the left side of the huge Galaxy erupted in a sheet of flame as all of the Gatlings, all of the AA-guns, all of the field artillery pieces fired at once.

The MiG pilots never knew what hit them.
