    Yellowjackets!: A high flyer.

    Paul Cora has done an extremely good job of recounting the history of the 361st Fighter Group during WWII. The book is well written and combines historical narrative with photos and technical data. A 'must read' for any military aviation history enthusiast!

    Yellowjackets! The 361st Fighter Group In World War II

    This book is a must for all who have an intrest in World War II aviation. Mr. Cora has gone to great lengths to preserve to life and times of one unit of that war. 'Yellowjackets' is a journey in time to war torn Europe. Mr. Cora is a gifted guide for all who are intrested in this era of history. While the 361st was not one of the highest scoring groups it was certainly one of the most colorful. Their mission of escort and the destruction of enemy assets on the ground was carried out with both precision and professionalism. This is a volume that should be in every World War II library.

    Truth is more exciting than fiction.

    Whoever it was that said, "Truth is stranger than fiction" was right. If he had said, "Truth is more exciting than fiction" he'd have been right, too. In tracing the exploits of the 361st Fighter Group from the cold gray days of the winter of '43 when it was first formed, to the warm, deadly days of the spring of '45, Paul Cora aptly demonstrates this fact. This is a history of people and planes; the pilots and ground crews of the 374th, 375th and 376th Fighter Squadrons which made up the 361st Fighter Group, known as the "Yellowjackets" because of the bright yellow color painted on the noses of their aircraft, and the P-47 Thunderbolt and P-5 Mustang, which they flew into combat daily, sometimes against great odds. It's also about duty, sacrifice and heroism; about ordinary men who did extraordinary things every day, without fanfare or complaint, risking their lives while accompanying and protecting the heavy B-24 and B-25 bombers as they penetrated German airspace on bombing raid during the spring of 1944. Whether you're a WWII history buff, or like me, simply fascinated by the American warplanes of that era, reading this book will add to your store of knowledge about that slice of history, while providing hours of enjoyable reading about the contributions made by American fighter pilots in the air war over Europe. This is a must-read, a valuable read. I heartily recommend it.
