"In 1942, as Japan dominates the Pacific Theater, small contingents of US Army Airmen make their way to the embattled Allied airbase on Papua, New Guinea. When pilot Captain Jay Zeamer and bombardier Sergeant Joseph Raymond Sarnoski can't convince superiors to give Zeamer his own plane, they recruit a crew and rebuild a B-17 with junkyard parts. In June 1943, they fly Old 666 on a 1200-mile suicide mission into the teeth of the Japanese Empire, engage in the longest dogfight in history, and change the momentum of the War in the Pacific." -- Back cover.
