KIRKUS REVIEW

Another spare account of heroism for the aviation annals of today, in a straight narrative recital of the 63 days on Guadalcanal in which Joe Foss shot down 26 Jap planes and equalled Rickenbacker's World War I record. From a South Dakota farm to a Pacific island, and a daily round of raids and dogfights, manoeuvers and tactics which resulted in a 5 to 1 score, of his own first Zero -- of forced landing and rescue --of malaria and return to the States, and the Congressional Medal of Honor.
