About the Book
Researched over a four year period and including 325 contemporary photos, maps and charts, the two volume Gold Star Aces set chronicles the final moments of one hundred and fourteen USAAF aces. Some of the men featured in this book have become legends, a few were completely forgotten. Now they are all gathered together into two volumes and their stories are being told. Volume I covers the time period between the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the end of June 1944. Volume II starts with July 1944 and concludes with the final defeat of Japan in August 1945. The two volumes total 256 and 284 pages respectively and are illustrated with 155 photos and maps in Volume I and 173 in Volume II.
