This is a book by Tom Blackburn about his squadron of F4U Corsair's and their service in the Solomon Islands and southwest Pacific during World War II. I find it to be informative, but an average work in this genre that is tedious at times and a bit too dominated, at times, by Blackburn,s self centered view of events.
