Boola Boola Flyboy

David Tilghman Harris

David Harris, self-titled Boola Boola Flyboy, recounts his flying during which the reader, as an imaginary co-pilot, will share the thrills, suspense, terror, and romance experienced by a World War II fighter pilot who often admits he didn't know whether he was coming or going. Concurrent with his personal trials, he developed a keen sense of history in describing a wartime society totally committed to winning the war against the Axis. Along the way, the author also describes his encounters with risks in the air and romance on the ground as a "There's No Tomorrow" syndrome that appeared to be the norm, rather than behavior rationalization. Finally, his encounters with vertigo, a fighter-pilot's worst enemy, reveals the stark reality of flying blind in the clouds, out of control, and in a death spiral—a condition that caused thousands of aerial casualties, particularly in the ETO. As a reader, do NOT bail out before the final landing! You will be glad you stuck it out with the Boola Boola Flyboy!
