The clarity that knocks on a personal level during a government overthrow is unmatched, especially when you're a Commander in the Navy during the hostile transition.

In this true story, you'll be captivated by the courage and perseverance of an Iranian pilot that served in the Navy, otherwise known as Hava Darya, during the Iranian revolution in the '70's

From stories about the U.S. hostage crisis, the uprising to overthrow Shah Pahlavi and pivot to an Islamic regime, and the means of getting political asylum for a better future for his family --- this book is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat as you learn more about how Iran turned into what it is today from the first hand experiences of a military leader.

Touraj's Memoir illustrates the pressures of political turbulence during his service. A young man whose journey was impacted, like many others, by an uprising and a war shares his first-hand experience as a Navy pilot through Iran's tumultuous history.

This is a collection of stories of a near-forgotten war and those who lived through the transition of a country and its culture.

It is through such stories that history can be preserved and the sacrifices of those involved are not forgotten.10% of royalties will be donated to H.D. Veterans
