He is the last hope of ravaged America!
Reduced to a blackened landscape, disarmed and leaderless, the United States is united no longer. But out of the ruins of a once great land emerges a savage lone warrior on the road to retribution. A fearless, "right stuff" jet fighter ace, he is known to some as Hawk Hunter. He is known to the world as Wingman.
The bloody Circle War for control of America's West is over, and the Russian invaders defeated—for the time being. But the depraved international terroist known as Viktor who orchestrated the unspeakable carnage has escaped—and Hawk Hunter is determined to bring him justice or die in the attempt. The trail leads to North Africa and an Egyptian pyramid concealing a deadly prize that will determine the fate of the embattled Middle East. It's up to Hawk Hunter to rally the armies of freedom and strike a desperate blow for a forgotten dream called "America"—and the survival of the free world!
