Inhaltsangabe: Robert L. Hecker's, Rush to Glory, lays open the lives to two rival brothers, Hal and Luke Bailey, opposites in every way, one of a more gentle nature, and the other possessed of unrelenting ambition. Set against the backdrop of W.W.II with all of Europe aflame, Hal proves that failure is often in the eye of the beholder and that success to one man is often total devastation to another. Determined to do his duty for his country, Hal enlists in the Air Force, is trained as a bombardier, and finds himself assigned to his brother's command in Thorpewood, England, base of the 300th Bomb Group. Luke, worried that Hal will somehow diminish his rise to the top, takes a tough stance with Hal and places him at the mercy of not only the German war machine, but also at the mercy of his comrades-in-arms. As Hal observes, "Apparently here when you gambled you had to do it with an intensity that was life or death; when you danced, you had to perform a ritual to living; and if you drank, you had to pour the liquor down as though there would never be any more."

Über den Autor: ROBERT L. HECKER was born in Provo, Utah but grew up in Long Beach, CA. Graduating from high school just as the US entered WWII. Enlisting in the Army Air Corps, he flew B-17s in thirty missions over Europe, earning five Air Medals and the Distinguished Flying Cross. After the war he began writing radio and TV dramas, then moved on to writing and producing more than 500 documentary, educational and marketing films on subjects ranging from military and astronaut training, nuclear physics, aeronautics, the education of Eskimos and Native Americans, psychology, lasers, radars, satellites and submarines. His short stories and articles have been published in numerous magazines, and he is currently working on several movie screenplays as well as other novels. A graduate of the Pasadena Playhouse School of Theater and the Westlake College of Music, recently Robert has begun song writing and has songs in country, gospel and big-band albums. His wife, the former Frances Kavanaugh, a legendary screenwriter of westerns, has a permanent exhibit in the Autry Museum of Western Heritage. They have two children and four grandchildren. And he still is a pretty fair tennis player.
