The author mixes his sweet memories of youth in the cotton blossom air of Hillsboro with gut-wrenching accounts of combat flying during the Korean War. Atkinson was a Navy carrier pilot who served three combat tours and flew hundreds of combat missions during that war, mostly dive bombing missions. Few books have been written about the role of carrier pilots during the Korean War. Although rich in flying stories, this is much more than just another pilot story. It is a book about life, war, and family, written by a sensitive storyteller. A rare war book, in that it also appeals to women. A beautiful book with 32 pages of quality photos.
