    To Fly and Fight: Memoirs Of A Triple Ace (Warcraft) To Fly and Fight: Memoirs Of A Triple Ace

    Knowing Bud personally for years makes this book as special for me (having known Paul Tibbets for years, and others as well) as Paul's book ENOLA GAY was. I have to admit a bit of prejudice here, as both of these men (Paul Tibbets passed in 2007) have been a great influence on me. That aside, Bud telling of his air combat experiences over Europe in WW2 (in the "first person") makes this book one of the best "fighter pilot" books of WW2 (or any war, for that matter) ever published. If you can possibly plan to meet Bud at one of the many air shows and aviation venues he attends each year, he'll most likely have copies of his/this book for sale. Have him sign it for you and shake the hand of an 8th Air Force, 357th FG veteran, an all around great guy.

    Great book told by a great pilot

    This book completely had my interest all the way through. This book was told by a great pilot, with a very colorful carreer in the Air Force. This book tells af his life and his life-long goal to fly. It is a great book and should be read by everyone who enjoys flying. It tells of his flying experiences in WWII, as a test pilot, and then during Vietnam. Great Book. Read it.

    An 'Officer and a Gentleman' for Real!

    Thanks to 'Bud' Anderson and his publisher for updating a book that every aviation enthusiast should have on his (or her) shelf. If you are at Oshkosh in 2000 or in Auburn, California (check out Izzy's Burger Spa) next week, take the time to meet and shake hands with one of our nation's 'Greatest Generation.' You'll meet an authentic hero with twinkling bright blue eyes and the weathered face of a mountain hiker. You'll be amazed that this man was once a highly skilled hunter in the skys over Germany. If you can't get to Oshkosh or Auburn, buy this book and follow Anderson from his boyhood in the California foothills, to the dangers of test flying, and now to the quiet thrill of inspiring the next generation of 'Young Eagles' as he gives teenagers rides in T-34s, T-6s and even P-51s. This book is great for anyone who 'aims high' and wants to take off into the 'wild blue yonder.' Like the man, the book is 'sierra hotel' (the name of his lake house) and totally honest!
