The Hawks of Kamalon is a fantastic adventure to another world. Ten unsuspecting men are chosen from WWII pilots to be heroes on a planet across the universe. The first few chapters are a slow start, but once the engine is revved, this book doesn't stop until it's over.

Dropped into a foreign people and a war they don't have anything to do with, these pilots are anxious to get back home and to their own important mission back on Earth. Unfortunately, they're stuck for the time being, until the Az

The Hawks of Kamalon are the implacable combination of eight British and American planes of the 51 Squadron who've left WWII torn England on a deadly mission to Germany and are transported in the channel to a world light years away into another do-or-die battle on an alien planet. The "Hawks" bring with them their Spitfires and P51's and are quickly embroiled in a fight only Michael Reisig could make authentic and heart-thumpingly lively with empathetic characters too real and charismatic to ...more

Highest praises for another brilliant adventure by Michael Reisig.

A talented and elite group, a mixed team of American and British WWII fighter pilots – “volunteered” for a special mission to bomb a German production plant – are surprised en route, at five-thousand feet above Earth, as a curious haze of fog appears before them. With no time to maneuver around it, they are sucked through into another world of emerald skies, beautiful people and nations divided by conflict.

With a war waging and a

The Hawks of Kamalon are members of a joint British and American special flight of fighters and bombers flying on a raid to Germany in WWII. When they fly into a fog bank they encounter strange sights and turbulence before finding themselves flying over a unknown ocean and landing to great crowds and applause in world light years away from Earth. They have been brought there in the hopes they can help repel an anticipated invasion by the other civilization on the planet. The island nation where ...more

While I don't usually read books in the sci/fi fantasy genre, the idea behind this one really caught my eye. A group of WWII fighter and bomber pilots transported across the galaxy to help an enlightened society fight evil. I've read several of Reisig's Caribbean action/adventure books, so delving into an interplanetary action novel written by him seemed right. I'm glad I did. Reisig's ability to describe places and events, even on another planet, is parallel to no other. This book had me from ...more

The Hawks of Kamalon by Michael Reisig was won in a Goodreads giveaway. By the end of the first chapter I was hooked. The story follows a group of World War 2 pilots who a transported to another world to be the saviors of a peaceful human society at War with another despotic kingdom. The action is constant. The characters are interesting. I have always had a weak spot for alternate history and stories that involve a group of Earthlings coming to the rescue. This story did just that for me. It is ...more

wow! what a trip, literally & figuratively
pilots in WWII start off on a bombing mission to Germany & end up on another planet, brought there by a peaceful people who need to fight off an evil enemy they are not spiritually & physically able to resist
this grabs you with the action, the characters, and the lessons for our planet
William E Whetstone
