In this sequel to THE WAR YEARS - When We Were Young, James Longbow and his best friend and brother-in-arms David Siegel, join the US Air Force Reserves, resulting in their flying B-29 bomber raids over North Korea. In the Cold War that followed, they were assigned a mission to fly a B-36 high altitude reconnaissance aircraft over Moscow to photograph Soviet air defense systems Having been shot down, captured, imprisoned and charged with external espionage, they eventually managed thru politics and stealth to return to the United States. Several years later, the Vietnam War emerges, and these two senior aviators watch their two sons, also aviators, drafted into the US Army as helicopter pilots with duty in Vietnam. During a helicopter rescue operation, these two young aviators are captured and incarcerated in a North Vietnamese prison camp. Their agonizing parents, desperate for a viable solution to rescue their sons, elect James Longbow, the senior officer and father, to execute a plan to liberate their two sons, whose chances depend largely on their own efforts with divine assistance.
