A new movie tie-in edition of the unforgettable tale of courage from America's "forgotten war" in Korea, by the New York Times bestselling author of A Higher Call.
Devotion tells the inspirational story of the U.S. Navy's most famous aviator duo, Lieutenant Tom Hudner and Ensign Jesse Brown. A white New Englander from the country-club scene, Tom passed up Harvard to fly fighters. An African American sharecropper's son from Mississippi, Jesse became the navy's first black carrier pilot, defending a nation that wouldn't even serve him in a bar.
Devotion takes us soaring overhead with Tom and Jesse as they battle a North Korean invasion. As the fury of the fighting escalates and the Marines are cornered at the Chosin Reservoir, Tom and Jesse fly, guns blazing. When one of the duo is shot down behind enemy lines and pinned in his burning plane, the other faces an unthinkable choice: watch his friend die or attempt history's most audacious one-man rescue mission.
