Have read this book. Great descriptions of the Orient and being a POW in Japan. Was a little disappointed with the lack of descriptions of the aircraft he flew or the aircraft he flew against. Sometimes it has to be taken with a grain of salt, but hey the guy lived through all of that.
Two books I’d recommend to fans of Pappy Boyington /”Baa Baa Black Sheep” would be Frank Dalton’s “They Were Eagles” and Bruce Gambale’s “Black Sheep One”. Both are great reads about the squadron & Boyington. “They Were Eagles” really paints an accurate picture of what it was like to serve with VMF-214 under Boyington and does a really good job of describing the guys in the squadron. “Black Sheep One” focuses solely on Boyington’s life but also goes into more detail about the TV show than most everything else I’ve seen.
