Few naval aviators in World War II realized that when they earned their wings of gold they were about to become test pilots for a whole new kind of aerial combat. Here, in their own words, these courageous fliers describe the life-and-death battles that defined the revolution in naval strategy that rose from the ashes of Pearl Harbor, where fighter pilots watched in horror as aircraft launched from Japanese carriers bombed their planes and airfields into smoking rubble. Includes an Index. "Hardcore military buffs will delight in the nonstop action, tactical lore, and clipped flyboy lingo." - Publishers Weekly
