Five Down and fl

A history of U.S. military airmen- heavy on combat and color, light on theory and data, the narrative races along supersonically with the Great Sky-men and their adventures flashing by, barely leaving time to glimpse them. The book lacks and misses solid passages of background and tie-in material; it could also be prosier and more thoughtful, more speculative. The heroes themselves are skillfully enough sketched and unquestionably it's all very thrilling.
