Those meeting Major Hassan Granmayeh today see a highly-intelligent aeronautical scientist who doesn’t immediately stand out from the crowd. But his life story does. Granmayeh was once a decorated fighter pilot in the Iranian Air Force who refused to serve the revolution. What happened next is revealed in “The Last Escape: Ex-Fighter Pilot of the Iranian Air Force.”
A new book, “Crop Duster: A Novel of World War II” which fuses fact with fiction to depict the fellowship of pilots, has been released.
Written by John D. Beatty, the book is the story of two pilots caught up in war — one in the U.S. and one in Germany.
