Overview

Joe Foss, Flying Marine, first published in 1943, is the account of World War II Marine flying ace Joe Foss (1915-2003). Beginning with his childhood on a South Dakota farm, Flying Marine tells the story of Foss's 63 days on Guadalcanal during which time he shot down 26 Japanese planes, equaling the World War I record of Eddie Rickenbacker, forced landings and rescues, and bouts of malaria. For his distinguished service, Foss was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1943, and he would go on to become the 20th governor of South Dakota, the American Football League's first commissioner, and a television broadcaster. Illustrated with 15 pages of photographs.
