Super Marine
The Sgt. Orland D. "Buddy"  Jones Story
by Ken Hechler

Individual portraits of "The Greatest Generation" now number in the hundreds, but this work by Ken Hechler goes right to the top.

Forgotten Fields Of America
Volume IV
World War II Bases and Training Then and Now
by Lou Thole

    This volume and the three that precede it give an overview of the buildup of the Army Air Forces just before and during World War II. It's a wonderful story, full of everything that make Americans proud. It's also a sad story because many of the young men and women who trained and served at these fields and then went overseas, never came back. Some made the supreme sacrifice without ever leaving their training base. Almost 15,000 young men were killed in air crew training during the war.

Forgotten Fields Of America - Volume III

World War II Bases and Training Then and Now

by Lou Thole

This book, and the two preceding it, tell a story that is largely forgotten in the history of the United States Air Force. Actually, it's a story within a story, one that takes place during the finest and most difficult period in American history. It is a magnificent chapter in our past because of the results achieved when Americans came together as never before to face and defeat a common enemy. Starting from scratch, and largely unencumbered by governmental red tape and partisan politics, America built the foundation for the greatest aerial force the world has ever seen.
