Synopsis: Combat Over Korea offers a superb selection of thrilling accounts by Allied airmen of their experiences. These include air combat between fighters, a B29 Superfortress bomber ditching in the sea, C-54 cargo plane being attacked by North Korean fighters.

We read of the exploits of the 21 Troop Carrier Squadron (The Kyushu Gipsies) who flew into impossibly short strips to rescue thousands of wounded soldiers – they received the Presidential Citation for their feat.

Others tell of their hair-raising escapades after being shot down. While a number miraculously avoided capture (often due to the skill of fellow pilots), many were less lucky. Their treatment in captivity was often brutal. Very few escaped but 1st Lieutenant Melvin Shadduck did and he tells his story here, as do others who have remarkable experiences to describe.

While it was not until 1955 that the last POWs were released, the Author concludes that there is every possibility that a number were denied freedom forever.

About the Author: Philip Chinnery is an author and historian.

Book Description Pen Sword Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Combat Over Korea contains a superb selection of Allied airmen s first-hand operational experiences during this too often neglected war. These include aerial combat between fighters, a B-29 Superfortress bomber ditching in the sea and C-54 cargo plane being attacked by North Korean fighters.Worthy of particular mention are the exploits of the Death Rattlers of VMF-323 and other Marine squadrons whose Corsairs flew close air support for the 1st Marine Division as they stormed ashore at Inchon and later when they helped save the Division from annihilation during the retreat from the Chosin Reservoir. Other accounts tell of hair-raising escapades after being shot down. While a number miraculously avoided capture, thanks to special rescue missions involving great skill and daring, many were less lucky. Their treatment by a merciless enemy in captivity was all too often brutal and very few escaped.While it was not until 1955 that the last POWs were released, the Author concludes that there is every possibility that a number were denied freedom forever.For its variety of air action and inspiring human courage, Combat Over Korea is unlikely to be bettered and will appeal strongly to a wide readership as well as aviation enthusiasts.
