Summary
When Ross Perot, millionaire head of the Dallas-based company EDS, discovered that two of his key men had been jailed in Iran, he turned to the one person who could help. Colonel 'Bull' Simons, famed World War II and Vietnam commando, agreed to do what the US government would not - go in and get the men out. On Wings of Eagles is the gripping account of an incredible real-life rescue carried out by a Green Beret colonel and a group of corporate executives who were hastily trained to form a fighting team. The story involves a secret penetration of a highly dangerous territory, a dramatic jailbreak, and a harrowing overland escape to the Turkish border - made all the more extraordinary by the fact that it is true
