Goodson's own story is fascinating enough. Torpedoed on the first day of the War, he joined the RAF as one of the first US volunteers. He was then engaged in continuous combat in Hurricanes, Spitfires, Thunderbolts and Mustangs, downing 32 enemy Aircraft before himself being shot down destroying German rocket planes on the ground at Peenemunde.
But this book is much more. There are first-hand, intimate stories of some of the fabulous pilots who flew with Goodson in the RAF Eagle Squadrons and the US 4th Fighter Group - "Fourth but First". Characters such as Don Blakeslee, Don Gentile, Johnny Godfrey, Kid Hofer, Mike Sobanski, all are here, all the Aces of the Fighter war.
By early 1944, Colonel Goodson was one of the most famous squadron commanders in the Eighth Air Force. His entire narrative is distinguished by his keen observation and his independent mind.
