Pilot Dan Zimberoff has released a new novel, ‘The Last Top Gun: A Story Of The Last Generation Of Navy Fighter Jocks.”
The novel features US Navy pilot Eric “Spyder” Greene as he grapples with a post-9/11 world filled with unmanned aircraft and drones, politically-driven policies, women in combat, and doubt as to his role in any of it.
Spyder meets the future of naval aviation in the form of two young, aspiring aviators. The grizzled fighter pilot, raw and anything but politically correct, recounts his harrowing experiences when he and his squadronmates were part rock stars, part Olympic athletes in the air and all male.
“This book shares the story of my generation’s military,” explains Zimberoff. “We truly were a fraternity of airborne warriors; a generation that no longer exists as the military works diligently to form a ‘best of the best’ team of Top Guns representing every cross-section of society. I’m certainly not saying that diversity is a bad thing — far from it — but times have changed and the all-boys club I was once a part of, and every generation of military man before me, is now just a shadow of its former self. The Last Top Gun s is a true showcase of what being a navy carrier pilot used to be all about.”
Zimberoff notes that 50% of the profits from the sale of the book will be donated to charity organizations that support US active duty and veterans organizations.
‘The Last Top Gun: A Story Of The Last Generation Of Navy Fighter Jocks’ is available at Amazon.
