Perry Bradley is almost full blooded American Indian. He is intelligent and of unimpeachable moral character. His friendship with the tribal Medicine Man leads to an encounter with spirits who enlist him to combat evil in the living world. He is comfortable in the role, and does as instructed, going to the Middle East during the prelude to the first Gulf War in 1991. His encounter with two Christian fighter pilots, cause him to reexamine the reasons for his actions. The paradox is that God chose him to act on His behalf before Perry even knew Him. The manner in which he reaches this conclusion, and the actions which follow help to solidify his belief's and guide his final actions as the Coalition Forces overwhelm the Iraqi forces in the most one sided battle in history.
