A Handful of Hell : Classic War and Adventure Stories
by Robert F. Dorr and Robert Deis and Wyatt Doyle




Overview -

"These stories were being read by men who'd been there, done that. I had to have the personalities and the details right. They wouldn't tolerate having men like themselves overly glorified, or to have war made glamorous. . . ."

Aviator, diplomat, and historian, Robert F. Dorr was uniquely qualified to write for men's adventure magazines, bringing sweat-and-blood, nuts-and-bolts authenticity to his stories of risk, combat, and sacrifice. Best known today for his highly regarded historical works, Dorr's stories for the men's pulps also drew from jaw-dropping true accounts, as action-packed as any imagined by his hard-boiled peers.

In this tense, gritty collection, the master storyteller drops readers squarely into the action's fiery crucible, both in the cockpit and on the front lines. Each story includes full-color reproductions of the explosive vintage art from the stories' original publication by some of the greatest names in illustration.
A singular collection in the author's vast bibliography, A Handful of Hell highlights the best of Robert F. Dorr's vivid, gripping tales of aerial conflict, battlefield heroism and action--some fact, some fiction, all adrenaline-fueled, white-knuckle adventure.

"Robert F. Dorr sets the standard for writing about aviation and adventure."
-- Walter J. Boyne,
author and former director,
National Air and Space Museum
