KIRKUS REVIEW

The material for this story was gathered at the Brooklyn Air Station, Floyd Bennett Field. The hero is a graduate of the Coast Guard Academy at New London, has had active duty on a cutter, and has been to Pensacola. Here he starts as an Ensign taking test flights, studying the different branches such as parachuting, photography, navigation, engineering, training enlisted men, making patrol reports. Then comes Pearl Harbor, routine is speeded, he proves so equal to his job in a particular situation that he receives the Distinguished Flying Cross.
