Brassey's air combat reader by Philip Handleman( )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Showcasing the twentieth century's best writing on the topic of air combat from World War I through the Gulf War, Brassey's Air Combat Reader examines the evolution of air combat strategy and tactics. It includes extracts from memoirs by such legends as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, hair-raising third-person accounts by such great pilots as Douglas Bader and by such heroic leaders as Pete Mitscher, and one compelling work of fiction by best-selling novelist Walter Boyne. Classic writings on the art and science of air warfare by visionaries Billy Mitchell, Giulio Douhet, and others trace the evolut
Soaring to glory : a Tuskegee airman's firsthand account of World War II by Philip Handleman( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He had to sit in a segregated rail car on the journey to Army basic training in Mississippi in 1943. But two years later, the twenty-year-old African American from New York was at the controls of a P-51, prowling for Luftwaffe aircraft at five thousand feet over the Austrian countryside. By the end of World War II, he had done something that nobody could take away from him: He had become an American hero. This is the remarkable true story of Lt. Col. Harry Stewart Jr., one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen of World War II. Award-winning aviation writer Philip Handleman recreates the harrowing action and heart-pounding drama of Stewart's combat missions, including the legendary mission in which Stewart downed three enemy fighters. Soaring to Glory also reveals the cruel injustices Stewart and his fellow Tuskegee Airmen faced during their wartime service and upon return home after the war. Stewart's heroism was not celebrated as it should have been in postwar America -- but now, his boundless courage and determination will never be forgotten." --
