Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Bring[s] a new perspective to World War II literature...Exciting" — Library Journal.

A powerful chronicle of loyalty, love, and heroism under fire, this is the unforgettable memoir of a member of the Greatest Generation who fought in America's greatest battles-and of the war one man waged both in and out of the skies.

High-spirited young Robert Morgan was transformed from a fast-living, privileged playboy who grew up hobnobbing with the Vanderbilts into a steel-nerved pilot forged in the cauldron of World War II's most dangerous and desperate aerial encounters. This is the triumphant tale of that transformation-and of the plane and crew that never failed to bring him back home.

Synopsis:

Cowritten by a Pulitzer Prize winner, this memoir takes readers into the heart of war above 20,000 feet. A powerful chronicle of loyalty, love, and heroism under fire, this is an unforgettable story of one of the greatest generation who fought America's greatest battles--and of the war one man fought both in and out of the skies. Photos.
