From the Publisher
Annotation Legendary fighter pilot Robin Olds, a rare "triple ace" with 16 confirmed aerial victories, recounts his air heroics in World War II, as one of the youngest and most successful Allied pilots, and Vietnam, where he attained legendary status as one of the finest wing commanders in American history. In addition to his gripping renditions of his many military achievements, Olds details his All-American college football career at Army, his courtship and marriage of actress Ella Raines, and his post-combat military career, when he failed to achieve his deserved rank because of perceived insubordination.
