Every Reason to Fail is unlike anything you’ve ever read.
It’s not a history book, but it’s full of old history—and new history—from cover to cover, and with historic people and airplanes to boot!
It’s not a mystery book, but it’s full of genuine suspense and intrigue.
It’s not an aviation book, but in it you will get a glimpse into the real world of aviation and aviators that few will ever be fortunate enough to experience.
It’s not a geography book, but The Crew will take you to places you’ve probably never heard of, and few will ever go.
It’s not a self-help book, but in it you might find the inspiration to attempt something worthwhile that seems impossible.
It’s not an adventure book, but the tale is about an adventure like few in modern history.
It’s not a military book, but it’s full of military history and it’s main characters are old warbirds.
It’s not a book on project management, but you will learn many things about how NOT to run a major project…and why those things don’t matter if you get the main things right.
It’s not a math book, but…it’s just not a math book. So there’s that.
The mission seemed simple enough. Completely restore a 75-year-old historic DC-3 and fly her from Montana to France for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. Starting with no volunteers and no money. In under a year. With a crew that had only a few hours of experience flying one. Ride along with author and pilot Bryan Douglass, the rest of the flight crew, the volunteers, paratroopers, World War II veterans, and others on this inspirational story of an impossible dream that almost didn’t come true. The underdog of the D-Day Squadron faced insurmountable odds, constant delays and a shortage of nearly everything except determination. The idea of crossing the north Atlantic in a 75-year-old, newly restored airplane only a few hours after her first flight would terrify most, but you’ll meet the people who believed it could be done. The transatlantic journey of the D-Day Squadron’s “Mighty Fifteen” was an incredible feat, but the story of Miss Montana is the best of them all. Laugh, cry, and be amazed as you get the entire inside story from a pilot who was there.
Every Reason to Fail is an incredible and inspirational tale from Bryan Douglass that will inspire, impress and captivate readers from start to finish!

Bryan Douglass is a newly discovered author of mine, however, I wish I had found his work sooner because his writing is compelling and informative at the same time. Never before have I been so engrossed in a book of this nature, I adore reading about history and the journey that unfolded, but sadly some history-based books can be challenging to read. They can be difficult because some are full of too much detail which is not written in an entertaining or easy-to-understand way but Every Reason to Fail, on the other hand, is not!
Byran Douglass has struck the perfect balance with his book because he has managed to write his book in an entertaining and insightful, informative way. In other words, the text is full of great detail, but it is written in an easy-to-read style that is accessible to all readers!
Bryan Douglass indeed is a gifted author and this is thanks to his extensive knowledge and passion for the subject and telling readers his story. Never before have I read a book of this nature that is full of so much passion and enthusiasm from the author so I genuinely hope that you lovely readers take my advice when I write that you should read this phenomenal book.
Overall Every Reason to Fail is an excellent, informative and compelling book that will entertain as well as inform readers so I, of course, have to award the book five stars! Be sure to have a read of the preview below book lovers, you won’t regret it!
