Description

Sky Knights is a unique story that is summed up by its readers as "hard to put down and easy to follow." The story takes place during the worst war that mankind has ever seen, as seen through the eyes of a young man whose fear is overcome by his sense of wonder over the events that unfold before him. The young fighter pilot, Kenny Davis, lost an air battle to the seasoned Luftwaffe ace, Hans Kirpes. Davis was prepared to meet his maker as Kirpes lined up on his disabled plane for the kill. Only, rather than take the shot, Kirpes pulled up along side of Davis, saluted and flew off, allowing Davis to bail out of his doomed P-51. Later, the Stars and Stripes newspaper told the story, only with a different perspective... making Davis out to be the superior pilot in the air battle. Unfortunately, Kirpes read the story which started a personal vendetta between the two. As fate would have it, at war's end, the US government hired Kirpes to teach Davis to fly the Luftwaffe's fighter jet, the Me262. An unlikely and unpredictable friendship grew from it that will keep you guessing through to the story's end. As an added bonus, the entire story is heavily steeped in chronological, historical fact.show more
