Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Flying P-38s, Jerry Johnson shot down 24 aircraft in 265 combat missions in the Pacific theater. At the age of only twenty-four, he commanded the highest-scoring fighter group in the Pacific. Tragically, though Johnson had survived three combat tours, which included a mid-air collision with a Japanese aircraft and being shot down by friendly fire, the new father disappeared without a trace while flying a courier mission one month after the wars end.

Synopsis:

The life of a unique warrior: a daredevil ace and a top air commander

Synopsis:

Using dozens of photographs and compelling details about survival in the Pacific theatre, Bruning illuminates the brief life of a unique daredevil fighter ace who tragically disappeared one month after the end of WWII. Third in The Warriors series from Brassey's Inc.
