Description
"Winged Brothers recounts the service of two brothers through more than forty years of naval aviation in both peace and war. The older brother, Ernest, entered naval aviation in an era of open-cockpit biplanes. In World War II he led first a squadron, then an air group to one of the most distinguished combat records in the Pacific theater. The younger brother, Macon's story guides the reader through the Navy's transition from piston-engine aircraft to jets, inside the inter-service disputes at the start of the atomic age, from straight to angled flight decks, through flight testing high performance aircraft, and to supersonic combat over Vietnam. Through personal letters, official reports, first-hand accounts, and first-person interviews, the brothers' relationship is revealed to the reader"--,Provided by publisher.
