Few men experience combat.
And of those, fewer will survive it.
But Hank Snow experienced combat in three wars and did it an astounding 666 times.
666 The Devil's Number is the biography of a USAF pilot who experienced three very different wars and returned home to tell about.
Readers will learn the life of a man who began life as a child of the great Depression, flew the legendary P-51 Mustang fighter over Japanese occupied Burma, the F-86 Sabre against Russian-flown MiGs and two separate tours in Vietnam against the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army.
666 The Devil's Number takes full advantage of the iPad by telling Hank's story in a highly graphical format. Readers see the actual military documents, unpublished combat photography and original artwork of Aviation artist, John Mollison.
Also, fresh multimedia links are included to access never-before seen film gun camera and historical footage.
666 The Devil's Number is written in a lively style, presenting fresh information for history buffs along with insight and commentary to bring the History Newbie up to speed quickly.

666 the Devil's Number
Excellent historical representation of an incredible pilot. The author clearly has done his homework to ensure an accurate, detailed and respectful representation of Col Hank Snow. This work is informative and enjoyable. I look forward to more work from this author.
This book is powerful! Should be a movie. I enjoyed every second of reading it. I would highly recommend it to others to read!! Provides an accurate account from a World War Two veteran airman. Who also served many more missions in Korea and Vietnam.
This is pretty cool! It was recommended to me by a friend as a new way to read a history book on my new iPad.
It's not what I expected - a lot more pictures and drawings and diagrams. And the writing is fun; the author writes to people who enjoy learning the human-side of history.
But, the book is really about Hank Snow. I read his story and learned to like him and respect the amazing commitment he made to our country
When I read about people like Hank, I feel proud of our military. But I also understand the cost in terms of sheer "life" that these people pay. If this book is light on anything, it's that.
There is no doubt that America has changed a lot in the past seventy years and this book helps describe that. I hope we have Hank Snows that are serving now, though. We will need them all.
