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.
