On Wings of Eagles is the account of an incredible rescue by a Green Beret colonel and a group of corporate executives hastily trained into a fighting team. When Ross Perot, millionaire head of the Dallas-based company EDS, discovered that two of his key men in Iran had been jailed, he turned to the one man in America who could help. Colonel 'Bull' Simons, famed World War II and Vietnam commando, agreed to do what the US government could not - go in and get the men out. This is the stuff of Follett's fiction - a secret penetration into a dangerous territory; a dramatic jailbreak; a harrowing overland escape to the Turkish border - and all the more extraordinary because it is fact.

About the Author

Ken Follett was twenty-seven when he wrote Eye of the Needle, an award-winning thriller that became an international bestseller. After writing more successful thrillers he surprised everyone with The Pillars of the Earth, about the building of a cathedral in the Middle Ages, which continues to captivate millions of readers all over the world. World Without End, the sequel, was a number one bestseller in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and France. His next project is his most ambitious yet. The Century trilogy will tell the entire history of the twentieth century, seen through the eyes of five linked families: one American, one English, one German, one Russian, and one Welsh. The first book was Fall of Giants, and the second, The Winter of the World, published in 2012.
