WWII - 1942 - Coastal South Carolina Twenty year old Bruce Weber is arrested, accused of running bootleg whiskey in his souped up hot rod. He is given the option of going to jail or enlisting in the V-5 US Naval Aviation Cadet Program (that does not allow cadets to drive) by a local judge. Bruce elects the latter and is sent to Pre-Flight School at the Univ. of GA, to St.Louis MO for primary training and to Pensacola for Final Squadron. During Cadet Training, Bruces experiences many dramatic -- sometimes dangerous, sometimes trying, often humorous - incidents and a few romantic interludes. Although he demonstrates exceptional flying ability and leadership that gains the admiration of fellow cadets and his flight instructors, he has a short temper and has difficulty with regulations. Nearing completion of flight training, Bruce is deeply concerned because he is in danger of washing-out due to accumulated demerits.

Americans, who sacrificed everything, including their sons and daughters, in an effort to save the world from Germany and Japan during World War II, will forever be known as the Greatest Generation. In this historical novel by veteran Captain Bob Norris, Robert Elliot emerges as an iconic representative of the generation that helped the United States win the war and begin an unrivaled period of prosperity. Fleeing the environmental and economic devastation of the Dust Bowl; Elliot's family moves to the Alaskan frontier to carve out a new life as homesteaders. As a young man, he discovers his two loves: flying airplanes and his eventual bride, Dee. Everything changes for Elliot and for America, on Dec. 7, 1941, when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. As a fighter pilot in the Army Air Corps, he engages the enemy; shooting down Japanese planes when his plane is shot down near Borneo, Elliot begins his greatest battle, the fight to survive captivity and return home to Dee. He only thought life in the Dust Bowl and Alaskan frontier were challenging. Being a prisoner of war and his escape is a trial unlike any other. An interesting and historically accurate account of life in the United States before and during WWII from the perspective of a kid growing up in the dust bowl to air combat in the Pacific. The young man then transitions to a fledgling airline business, while offering us a glimpse of what our parents endured in America when they were young. You feel like you were actually there during those earlier, difficult years! Well Done!

During World War II, a few, carefully selected women in the US and the UK were briefly given the unprecedented opportunity to fly military aircraft. Yet the story of these pioneer women pilots is made even more intriguing by the fact that, despite many notable similarities in the utilisation and organisation of the women in their respective countries, they experienced radically different fates. Throughout the war, the contribution of the women of the British ATA to the war effort was recognized and praised both from official quarters and in the press. By contrast, the American WASPs were first glamorized and made into Hollywood stars - and then subjected to a slander campaign. What accounts for this dramatic difference in the treatment of women pilots doing essentially the same job? This book seeks to answer these questions. The women who participated in the ATA and WASP have been allowed to speak for themselves. The story these women have to tell is exciting and intriguing.

No one else ever took a trip like this. Nearly 600 trips, actually. “But who cares,” I thought, when first approached to edit the manuscript for this book “... about flying into every little airport in Indiana, then moving on to those in surrounding states?” Pilots? Perhaps. Even so ... I’m a writer, not a pilot. And Bob Hechlinski is a pilot — not a writer. Except ... Bob has an insatiable curiosity about people, places, events, you name it. To him, an airport is more than a name or a spot on a map. He’s a great listener. He has ears and eyes for detail — “nuggets” that many people either overlook or don’t connect with other nuggets like dots on a page, to create picture after picture after picture. And Bob has a gift for gab. “Storytelling,” if you will. So if you believe (as I do) that “writing is talking when you can’t be there,” give this book a listen. Hear things you never knew about John Dillinger, Al Capone, a WWII pilot named O’Hare ... back-road encounters on Mackinac Island and not flying under the bridge ... out-maneuvering storm clouds ... the Oshkosh air show ... close-knit neighborhoods with hangar-garages ... airports in Ohio ... police in Gary, Indiana ... the link between Northwestern University and a historic Lake Michigan passenger-ferry tragedy ... how a teenager’s Happy Birthday flight launched a career ... and more. Much more. Some people read books from page 1; the opening line hooks them. Others check the ending first. (“If I like how it ends, I’ll like getting there.”) With ‘Honey,’ feel free to start in the middle; pick a page — any page. Chances are, you will quickly be drawn in and pulled onward from one mini-tale to the next. And at some point, you’ll say “Geez, let’s go back and read the rest!” I did. C’mon along for the ride. Bob makes even the shortest hop a fun trip. Richard E. Schingoethe
