Aces Dick Bong and Tommie McGuire flew fighters in the Pacific war, racking up a combined total of 78 confirmed victories, a still unsurpassed record. These two very different young men were both awarded the Medal of Honor. McGuire was killed in action in January 1945; Bong died in August 1945 while testing jet aircraft for Lockheed. Enthusiastic World War II readers will be drawn to this.
