KIRKUS REVIEW

The Pacific airwar is the background for these stories of II Navy and Marine aces who survival the fight -- and who made 235 kills of Japanese aircraft in doing it. The author of American Aces, Sims skillfully tells the story of those II men and re-creates the atmosphere of Midway, Guadaicanal, Rabaul, Leyte Gulf, etc. The roar of the engines, the spat of gunfire, the fatal plumes of smoke and oil are with us once again in a first rate history of those fearful lays over the Pacific.
