Instead I ended up enjoying this book much more. Gregory Boyington wrote this book in about 1957 and has an up dated preface in the front of this book. The book was written quite sensitively and with the great benefit of 20/20 hindsight Boyington has told his story in a low key way.
He tells us about his time with the Flying Tigers, then his induction into the armed forces to fight in WW2. he describes in detail all the things that transpired up to his being shot down and his ending up in a prison camp in Japan.
the story he has told in a warts and all. There is no fancy heroics, or embelishment of the story.
In all well worth reading for anyone who is interested in WW2 flying
Pappy was one tough SOB and his long stent in a Japanese Prisoner camp proves it. The book places almost equal focus and time there as his actual flying. Overall I'm glad I got hear his story. I felt like he just having a conversation with the reader.
