Two Concorde jets, protected by F-14 fighters and innumerable security officers, take off from an airport in Israel. The passengers: warriors, pacifists, lovers, enemies, and dignitaries'and a yet-undiscovered bomb planted by a terrorist bent on keeping the jets from reaching their U.N. Middle Eastern peace conference destination. A crash-landing in Babylon drops the motley crew of peace-seekers in the desert, forcing them to fight a war against an army of renegade Palestinian commandos as the Israeli authorities attempt a near-hopeless rescue mission. In a land of blood and tears, this will be an ill-equipped battle to the bitter end.

display_description Lod Airport, Israel: Two Concorde jets take off for a U.N. conference that will finally bring peace to the Middle East. Covered by F-14 fighters, accompanied by security men, the planes carry warriors, pacifists, lovers, enemies, dignitaries--and a bomb planted by a terrorist mastermind. Suddenly they're forced to crash-land at an ancient desert site. Here, with only a handful of weapons, the men and women of the peace mission must make a desperate stand against an army of crack Palestinian commandos--while the Israeli authorities desperately attempt a rescue mission. In a land of blood and tears, in a windswept place called Babylon, it will be a battle of bullets and courage, and a war to the last death.
