A Marine dive-bomber pilot, winner of the Navy Cross, is in this record just one young American, ""a common man -- what will there be for the sons of common men?"" he asks. In his story of action at Midway, Guadalcanal, the Hebrides, there is an undercurrent of supreme faith in God, a sense of leaning on that faith and being willing to acknowledge it openly -- and a doubt only in what man -- not God -- will make of the peace that follows the war. The story he tells is told so often that it is almost a commonplace one; it is history of this war in the South Pacific in the making, through the high courage of our boys, through their sacrifice. Plus market for Catholics.
