Click to EnlargeThe history of 18 U.S. Marine Corp F4-U Corsair fighter squadrons based on aircraft carriers in the Pacific. Despite a shortened carrier qualifications period for USMC pilots, the squadrons learned some lessons "the hard way," and they performed all missions successfully. The courage, innovativeness, and determinations of the individuals involved were in the highest traditions of the naval service.

This absorbing study traces the hurried training and deployment and the carrier combat operations of eighteen World War II Marine F4U Corsair fighter squadrons. The author, a World War II Marine aviator, describes heart-stopping dogfights, attacks against shipping, and strikes deep into Japan's heartland.
