Fighter pilot : [the memoirs of legendary ace Robin Olds] by Robin Olds( )

A larger-than-life hero with a towering personality, Robin Olds was a graduate of West Point and an inductee in the National College Football Hall of Fame. In WWII, Olds quickly became a top fighter pilot and squadron commander by the age of twenty-two - and an ace with twelve aerial victories. But it was in Vietnam where the man became a legend. He motivated a dejected group of pilots by placing himself under junior officers and challenging them to train him properly. He led the wing with aggressiveness, scoring another four confirmed kills, becoming a rare triple ace. With his marriage to Hollywood actress and pin-up girl, Ella Raines, his non-regulation mustache and penchant for drink, Olds was a unique individual whose personal story is one of the most eagerly anticipated military books of the year
