{detailed description}Stars and Bars, the result of a painstaking 20 years of research, is the most comprehensive book ever written on the American aces of the post-World War One period. Containing over one million words, its coverage of the American aces of the Spanish Civil War, Sino-Japanese War, World War Two, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War is exhaustive.
The great bulk of the book is devoted to almost 1400 biographies of individual fighter pilots, with introductory notes providing, in the majority of cases, place and date of birth, previous and later military service, and awards and decorations.
But the most extraordinary achievement of the author is his research into the claims of the pilots. In every case, the biographies include a full list of all claims made, by date,time, type, location and type of aircraft flown, together with (in many cases) the serial/Buno of the aircraft flown to achieve the claim, and a note of the author's sources.
When the 350 photographs are added —many never before published — this becomes a unique and momentous publication of true historical value, which the author believes provides most of the answers, and may be considered the penultimate word on the subject.{Author / Publisher / Date}by Frank Olynyk
