first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever... Gollum. Here,
alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile
and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum's precious ring that holds unexpected and useful
qualities... A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

1944. World War II rages and the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. Meanwhile the black pilots of the experimental
Tuskegee training program are courageously waging two wars at once – one against enemies overseas, and the other
against discrimination within the military and back home. Racial prejudices have long held ace airman Martin Easy Julian

assigned only second-rate planes and missions, the pilots of Tuskegee have mastered the skies with ease but have not
been granted the opportunity to truly spread their wings.
