Colonel 'Bull' Simons, famed World War II and Vietnam commando, agreed to do what the US government would not - go in and get the men out. On Wings of Eagles is the gripping account of an incredible real-life rescue carried out by a Green Beret colonel and a group of corporate executives who were hastily trained to form a fighting team. The story involves a secret penetration of a highly dangerous territory, a dramatic jailbreak, and a harrowing overland escape to the Turkish border - made all the more extraordinary by the fact that it is true.Hide synopsis

The story itself is interesting and fascinating. However, for my taste, the author must have collected a lot of details and then dumped them into the book. The work could have been cut by 1/3 and been a better book. I began doing that when the book lagged, and it worked well.
However, the true adventure is exciting. The problem with the "Wings of Eagles" is the book had too many feathers to fly gracefully.
