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 Readers see the actual military documents, unpublished combat photography and original artwork of Aviation artist, John Mollison.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.

Incredible story. Incredible book.
This is a beautiful piece of work, and an incredible story. 666 takes you into the story of one man who went far beyond the call of duty over the course of 3 wars. Hank Snow is the embodiment of the American Hero. The layout and imagery in the book along with links to videos of Colonel Snow's aerial gun footage is fabulous, creating an experience that's part book and part History Channel style documentary. Highly recommended.
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.
Not a typical biography!
Thoroughly enjoyed reading about the history of COL Hank Snow and especially in this very graphic, colorful format. The narrative was first rate and engrossing. I particularly enjoyed the visual aids and was excited to see links where actual gun camera footage was available from COL Snow's many missions. Inspiring, but realistic, look at an American icon. Look forward to other titles by the author.
