Description

A Marine flyer since 1935, Colonel Boyington was encouraged to resign his commission to fly with the Flying Tigers in China. There he got credit for five Japanese planes. But when he applied for reinstatement in the Marine Corps, he found himself disgraced for "having left the Corps in time of national emergency."

For nearly three months he parked cars in a Seattle garage until, in desperation, he telegraphed an Under Secretary of the Navy. In a few days he was on the way to the South Pacific where he was given a squadron of misfits. These pilots, unwanted by other outfits, and led by the oldest active Marine fighter pilot, made one of the greatest records of the war.

The heart of this book is the colorful story of Boyington's Black Sheep Squadron.
