Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone were perfect? But the fact is: Everyone has failures and faults.The men from the 352nd Fighter Group might not have been perfect. They were ordinary guys, who became heroes, and they got the job done under horrific circumstances. On one day alone, the 352nd claimed 21 enemy kills. I wish I could say that all of them came back safely from their combat missions, but sadly enough some were killed. The author doesn’t forget the ground crews, who were responsible for keeping the planes airworthy. It is not often that Ground Crews get the attention and respect they rightfully deserve.The author is a retired Marine Corps fighter pilot, and he knows his stuff. This is an interesting, albeit sad book at times. War is not a happy tune, but there were some fun times for these men, thank God. I have learned World War Two veterans aren’t run-of-the-mill people. Each one is remarkable and extraordinary in different ways. Most don’t think they were heroes - but they were just that! I believe this is a book that is well worth taking the time to read. Fighter Group: The 352nd "Blue-Nosed Bastards" in World War II is not an ordinary book - it is an exceptional one.  Jeannie Walker (Award-Winning Author) "Fighting the Devil" - A True Story of Consuming Passion, Deadly Poison, and Murder
