Recollections of a World War II Aviator.
Hynes. The author was an 18 year old boy when he left for Navy flight school in 1943, but by the time the war ended he was a veteran Marine pilot, still not quite 21, who had flown more than 100 missions in the Pacific theater. In this dramatic and funny narrative, he recalls those extraordinary years. More than a tale of combat, this is a story of one boy's growth to manhood in the turbulent, testing world of war in the air. 270 pgs., 5"x 7¾", sfbd. #0003392
