Showing a natural aptitude for flight, Pisanos (USAF (Ret.)) volunteered for service before even becoming an American citizen. In this memoir he recounts his early life in America and his World War II combat record from 1941 to his time with the French Resistance after a crash-landing in 1944, and on through the liberation of Paris and his return to the United States. The author flew a variety of craft, including the Spitfire, P-47, and P-51, on missions such as fighter sweeps, bomber escorts, and dogfighting; his flight descriptions are vividly detailed. Pisanos writes in a casual first-person narrative, and the title is intended more for the general public than for scholarly readers.
