Publisher Description

On Wings of Eagles is the thrilling novel based on the incredible real-life rescue of two Americans by a Green Beret colonel and a group of corporate executives from revolutionary Iran, from number one bestseller Ken Follett.

A Terrifying Prison As Iran descends into revolution two Americans get caught up in the upheaval. Captured, they are held in a heavily fortified prison fortress. Their situation is desperate, with the US government refusing to get them out.

A Daring Rescue Hope is, however, not completely lost as their boss, Ross Perot, the millionaire head of EDS, takes it upon himself to organise a rescue attempt. He enlists the aid of a Green Beret, Colonel 'Bull' Simons, famed World War II and Vietnam commando, to train his executives for the operation and the fight to come.
