In June 1950, North Korean troops crossed the 38th Parallel-- starting a war that cost over 33,000 American lives. Key to U.S. success in halting the Koreans and, later, the Chinese, was control of the air where USAF F-86 Sabres reigned supreme in combat with Russian MiG-15s. To Begin Again tells the story of a Georgetown University history teacher who is recalled to the Air Force and sent to Korea, commanding a special detachment of F-86s that engages the MiGs some 30,000 feet above the Yalu River. The novel relates his romance with one of his students, his friendship with a Jesuit colleague at Georgetown, his unexpected involvement with a woman in Japan, and his combat experiences flying America's most deadly fighter plane. Readers seeking a blend of military history and compelling romance need look no further.
