Baa Baa Black Sheep

( 17 )

Overview

The World War II air war in the Pacific needed tough men like Colonel Pappy Boyington and his Black Sheep Squadron. The legendary Marine Corps officer and his bunch of misfits, outcasts, and daredevils gave new definition to "hell-raising" - on the ground and in the skies.

Pappy himself was a living legend - he personally shot down 28 Japanese planes, and won the Congressional Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross. He broke every rule in the book in doing so, but when he fell into ...

    Entertaining and insightful

    When I read this book it felt a little slow at first to get into get story. But once you start to connect with "Pappy" you can't put down the book, the man lived an incredible life and much to tell. From his days as part of the flying tigers to, reenlisting into the USMC and forming his formidable squad of dare devils and misfits, to be being imprisoned by the Imperial army of Japan. Throughout everything that he has been threw "Pappy" always stayed in high and optimistic outlook on his situations but one thing about him tho was he always look out for his squad during combat endangering his life in air combat to protect his friends. By the end of the book I enjoyed the book I have read and brought new prospective into my life for his words. "Just name me a hero and I'll prove he's a bum."- "Pappy" Boyington

    World War 2 history lovers gotta read this!

    I recommend this book to all history lovers of World War 2. This book tells some fierce battles over the Pacific.
    The book tells to the readers that how the aces of Pacific theater war pilots flew their Corsairs and Wildcats from USAF and US Marines aircraft. They also tell how the other aces fought with the Japanese Navy and Japanese Airforce (IJN) (IJA. I liked this book, and anyone who is interested with dogfights and with world war 2... I suggest you to read this book.

    Great

    This book gives a great account of the air war in the pacific from the pilot's view. His style of writing isn't the greatest, but then again, he wasn't an english teacher, he was a pilot.

    Tough book to get into

    Personally, from a high school student's point of view, the story is really hard to fall into, unless you absolutely love to read books along this genre. From what I have read, Boyington was a great pilot but not the best as writers go. His style is a major factor in the difficulty of the book. He left many things to be pondered, most frequently over the fate of some missions briefly mentioned. This is not a book I would suggest for a book review or any other sort of project.

    Don't judge this book from the series

    Baa Baa Black Sheep provides an excellent snapshot of an american's experience in the Asian theatre from the time immediately preceeding America's entry into WWII until the end of the war. Particularily interesting are the various perspectives: as a member of the AVG; a commissioned Marine officer; and prisoner of war. Gregory Boyington's battle with alcohol is also an underlying current throughout the story. His observations on China, leadership,the American military culture and the Japanese are both entertaining and enlightening. I lived in Kunming for a year and visited many of the locations he writes about. It is a classic story.... Don't read it if you expect any similarities to the TV series.

    MUCH OVERATED BOOK !!!

    This is one of the most overrated books I´ve ever read about WW II fighter pilots (and I´ve read dozens of them!. Boyington was a great pilot, no doubt about that, but his writing style is terrible. He also almost never says about the fate of his fellow pilots or his deeds in combat. Most of the book is about his time in Japanese prison. The book is full of gaps, also. If you like to know more (and closer to the truth!), read 'Black Sheep: The Deffinitive Account of Marine Fighting Squadron 214', by Bruce Gamble.
