About the Author
David Wilhelm's personal account of his military experience is compelling. He started out in the ROTC in college and fought to be re-assigned to the Air Force. He served during WWII mainly in the European Theater, specifically Italy and flew many missions.
He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor in 2015.

It is well written and a quick read.
It is especially interesting to those of us who suffered through WWll, knowing how another branch of the service worked.
Without our bombers being protected by Dave Wilhelm's types of outfit, the European theater of war operations would have lasted many years longer and would have cost us many more lives...
Again, parts of his story could be made into a first class movie.
It was a fun read.
His book illustrates how much time it takes learning a job (flying) and then putting that job to use. His book then takes you to North Africa and then Italy, many places I have been. He did a good job of describing battles and the threats that he faced.
