David L. Robbins was born in Richmond, Virginia, on March 10, 1954. He grew up in Sandston, a small town east of Richmond out by the airport; his father was among the first to sit behind the new radar scope in the air traffic control tower. Both his parents, Sam and Carol, were veterans of WWII. Sam saw action in the Pacific, especially at Pearl Harbor.
1944. The Allies battle through Nazi-Occupied France, only the Red Ball Express - a massive convoy of trucks that serves as a fragile lifeline to the expanding front - supplies this immense effort.
Against this hellish backdrop the lives of two men are changed for ever.
