Gen McCarthy was my wing commander 1967-69 Craig AFB. I had the opportunity to get waxed by him on several occasions in handball. He had the rep of being the best pilot on base. I never truly respected the greatness, bravery, courage and ability of a warrior like Gen Michael C. McCarthy until later in life. Life as a pilot is unforgiving, life as a fighter pilot is brutally unforgiving. I wish I had discovered this book while he was still living.

No nonsense and to the point. Great memoir about the pilots, support team and the P-40 and P-47 warbirds. A vivid description of the forgotten theaters of WWII North Africa, Sicily and Italy.

I enjoyed learning about the campaigns my father went through. Complimentary statements were made about him, as I would have expected, knowing that my father was a humanitarian, gentleman, and a scholar. Great keepsake book for me and my family.

He had the rep of being the best pilot on base. He was all business. I never truly respected the greatness, bravery, courage and ability of a warrior like Gen Michael C. McCarthy until later in life. Life as a pilot is unforgiving, life as a fighter pilot is brutally unforgiving. I wish I had discovered this book while he was still living. I highly recommend this book. SSgt H D Penn USAF 1966-70.
