"This daring pilot's narrative is a straight-forward account of his exploits and experiences in the far-flung Pacific, spellbinding in its drama, pathos and breath-taking thrills. May it inspire many others to follow in his footsteps.
"Gore and Glory is the story of Young America...out to do or die."CHARLES WAYNE KERWOOD, Lieut.-Colonel, Chief Special Liaison Section, United States Army Air Force
