WingmenWingmen by Ensan Case


This World War II novel, with overtones of From Here to Eternity, was a precursor to the gay romance genre. Jack Hardigan’s Hellcat fighter squadron blew the Japanese Zekes out of the blazing Pacific skies. But a more subtle kind of hell was brewing in his feelings for rookie pilot Fred Trusteau. While a beautiful widow pursues Jack, and another pilot becomes suspicious of Jack and Fred’s close friendship, the two heroes cut a fiery swath through the skies from Wake Island to Tarawa to Truk, there to keep a fateful rendezvous with love and death in the blood-clouded waters of the Pacific.



This is another rescue effort. Actually, the book has a long history as it was first published in the 1970s and then faded into obscurity, was rescued by Cheyenne Press, and now it was again rescued by Lethe. It remains one of the earliest examples of gay romance. And it remains a wonderful read.


We have two copies of Wingmen to give away. You may choose print or digital editions.

I would love to win this book. I devour anything historical as fast as I can get my hands on it. Interesting how it finally fell into Lethe’s hands. Thanks for a great giveaway.


This sounds good so please count me in as well. Thanks


Add me to the giveaway please. This book looks really good.


What an interesting story behind this book. Count me in for the giveaway.


I have read some interesting reviews for this book and I have enjoyed many books written in this genre, long before MM became more popular (yay and thank you to all the authors and publishers) so thank you for a chance to win a copy of this book.


I’ve got this in e, but greedy reader here, because I’m putting my name in the hat for print. I love the work Lethe Press does to bring back older books. Yes, some things are dated, but the glimpse into the past is immeasurable.
