KIRKUS REVIEW

Good bang-bang stuff for airminded teen-agers. Twenty true short stories deal with high spots in the flying careers of real-life Air Force heroes, in actions ranging from London all the way to Africa and the Pacific theater. Some of the fliers, such as Don Gentile and Dick Bong, are almost legendary figures, but others, who deserve to be better known, get recognition. This book enters a market crowded with war stories, but the real-life characters and its concise form give it some plus value.
