From the Publisher
Editors Note A first-hand testimony from the pilot who received six Distinguished Flying Crosses, flew 385 combat missions, and became the 2005 Veteran of the Year. Ford writes his blow-by-blow account with compelling detail demonstrating why the 6th Troop Carrier Squadron, the most highly decorated in WWII, was crucial to the success of Allied efforts in stemming the tide of Japanese aggression. Just five miles from enemy lines, with snipers in the traffic pattern, their daily mission was to fly over the most challenging terrain on earth while evading Japanese Zeros. They had no maps, radios, roads, or fighter support.
