The third in Shanle’s Aviator trilogy, End Game takes the reader to the climactic battles of WWII in the Pacific and European Theaters.
A retired Naval Aviator (fighter pilot) and former Paratrooper, Shanle puts readers in the cockpit as hundreds of aircraft engage in the biggest and deadliest dog fights in history. Storm the beaches of Pacific Islands with the Marines, parachute into France with the Army Airborne. Stand on the decks of the USS Johnston as the tiny Destroyer charges an entire Imperial Japanese Fleet, by itself. While facing down the enemy, these same men and women hold together families and try to safeguard a small sense of normality inside of a whirlwind of death and destruction.
