“No one does oral history better than Gerald Astor.”
“Relying on oral histories and pure literary skill, he tells the naval aviation story in a compelling fashion that makes this book special…[He] nearly mak[es] it read like a dramatic novel–a difficult task indeed.”
–PROCEEDINGS, publication of the U.S. Naval Institute
"Astor is . . . an historian worth reading."
