When the slight and sickly child was born on a plantation in Louisiana, no one would have imagined the adventures he would set in motion and experience shaping outcomes forming the Cold War and the ongoing strife in the Middle East. But then he, like other unlikely boys had been born into what would later be called The Greatest Generation. This is a story based on an actual happening. Some of the characters are fictional, as are some of the incidents. The story is based on a feature article in Life Magazine, dated December 5, 1955, concerning the obtaining of a petroleum concession in the despotic Kingdom of Yemen by an American group. The group accomplished this in a race with the Soviets.
