“When the Shah is thrown out of Iran the nation’s fanatical turmoil becomes world headlines as party apparatchiks, feudal khans, Tehran bazaaris and militant mullahs vie to fill the power vacuum, with the CIA, KGB and M16 hovering in mutually destructive combat behind them.
Among the western victims of the revolution are the foreign helicopter pilots who have been servicing the oilfields up and down the country. Their one objective now is to make a bold concerted escape, with their helicopters, to safety across the Gulf.”
