Long Island, NY - October 26, 2015 - Operation Paperback, a non-profit organization whose volunteers collect and send books to American troops overseas, as well as veterans and military families here at home, is offering free digital copies of The Angel’s Face, by Mitchell Oppenheim, to all members of our military.
The Angel’s Face is historical fiction and every inch action and adventure. The novel is based on the author’s documentary, Captain Irwin S. Oppenheim in China, Burma and India, which recounts Captain Oppenheim’s classified service as a B-24 “ferret” pilot, the forerunner of the modern day AWACs aircraft.
Synopsis: Burma, 1945 – The Allies are losing the war with American military operations controlled by an incompetent British Admiral. They can’t agree on anything including the dress code at the officer’s club. With time running out, the Army Air Force and the OSS gamble on a prototype aircraft and a tribe of bloodthirsty headhunters. To succeed, they must disobey orders, falsify flight logs and stay off the tribe’s dinner menu – and that’s before they get off the ground.
