Arriving as a fresh US Army Air Forces pilot in New Guinea in late 1942, Richard Bong wasted no time taking on the Japanese, shooting down two planes in an early skirmish - an action that earned him a Silver Star. Over the next two years, Bong would amass US armed forces'' most impressive record of aerial victories of the entire war, surpassing even the great Eddie Rickenbacker''s World War I tally and notching 40 kills. In December 1944, he was personally awarded the Medal of Honour by General Douglas MacArthur. Now, acclaimed author Don Keith recounts the remarkable saga of Bong''s war years, and his tragic death while serving as a test pilot.
