Description
 
John Bruning tells the long overdue story of Gerald R. Johnson, a Col. in the U.S. Army Air Force (USAAF), one of the Pacific’s top aces & one of World War II’s top air commanders. The brief-action-filled life of Johnson, who has been all but forgotten since his death in 1945, is expertly woven from Johnson’s letters from the war zone & the recollections of family & comrades. His is an action-packed story, filled with the screaming high tension of conflict & the poignant agony of a comrade’s sudden death. This gripping account makes you realize how tough a war it was, & Johnson’s letters home are a vivid reminder that ordinary men rose to extraordinary heights to survive it. “A compelling & highly informative story.” Black & white photos & maps.
