281 American POWs were taken captive when the US pulled out of the country.
Now the US is assembling a Force of Eagles to bring them home.
The POWs, including one woman, have become the latest bargaining chip in Middle Eastern politics.
The rescue team includes ace fighter pilot Jack Locke, his weapons system officer, “Thunder” Bryant, Colonel Rupert Stansell, and General Lawrence “Sundown” Cunningham – and a company of Rangers.
The Ranger’s Command Sergeant Major, Victor Kamigami, soon proves he is a force in himself.
The mission becomes a race against a thirty-day deadline as a sadistic prison commandant works to break his captives’ will.
From behind enemy lines, to the back corridors of the Pentagon, the White House, and CIA headquarters, ‘Force of Eagles’ builds to a white-hot climax as the rescue team battles for control of the prison and the airfield critical to bringing the POWs home.
