Sinopsis:

Book by Wright James C

Críticas:

"Jim Wright could always tell a story, and this is one great tale--a war story, a coming of age story, an adventure story about flying and hopes and dreams. Best of all, it's a real page turner."--Bob Schieffer, "CBS News" Correspondent"Jim Wright served his country with commitment and bravery. This account ofhis service in World War II and the impact of that war on America isfascinating."--Ann Richards, former Governor of Texas, May 16, 2005"I have believed for a half a century that Jim Wright is one of the greatest of the 'greatest generation, ' but until the appearance of this highly perceptive book, I did not know of his brilliant, heroic war service. Both as Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives and as a combat bombardier, Jim offered dedication to the nation--not grandstanding. This book vividly describes what the World War II air war was all about. It is a magnificent personal story-- the best I have seen."--George McGovern
