Riassunto: This is the personal memoir of the legendary ''triple ace'' American fighter pilot and general officer in the U.S. Air Force, 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 for his All-American performance for Army. In World War II, 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 story is one of the most eagerly anticipated military books of the year.
Co-author CHRISTINA OLDS, the daughter of Robin Olds, holds a Vassar College B.A. degree in English and creative writing, is a member of the Air Force Association, and is the first honorary lifetime member of the Red River Valley Association.
ED RASIMUS is a retired USAF fighter pilot who holds a B.S. degree in political science and M.S. degrees in both political science and international relations. He has previously written two books on the Vietnam air war, When Thunder Rolledand Palace Cobra.
