In Air Commando Chronicles: Untold Tales From Vietnam, Latin America, And Back Again, Colonel Robert L. Gleason USAF (Ret.) provides the reader with fascinating and informative insights into his personal experiences as a battlefront airman in the China-Burma-India Theater during World War II where he flew missions in support of the British campaigns; his tour with the Strategic Air Command (SAC) serving as a B-29 and B-47 Aircraft Commander; and then as an Operation Officer in Vietnam; and then as Commander of the newly formed 605th Air Commando Squadron in Panama, with subsequent service in the Pentagon. Awarded more than 25 U.S. and foreign government military decorations, Gleason writes with authority and skill in conveying to the reader the events he participated in, and the personalities that influenced American actions in a wide ranging diversity of combat situations and circumstances. Air Commando Chronicles is a superb and very highly recommended addition to military studies reading lists for students, scholars, and military history buffs.
