From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 Up A collective biography of five American flyers/tacticians of World War II whose careers stretched from the days of silk-covered biplanes to those of supersonic jets. The subjects include Claire Chennault, leader of the ``Flying Tigers''; Jimmy Doolittle, commander of the first air strike upon Japan; and Curtis LeMay, youngest four-star general since U.S. Grant. Sweeney's enthusiasm for and knowledge of aviation and military air power come through in his clear, lucid prose. Furthermore Sweeney successfully gets across to young readers the message that each of these men was highly-motivated, imaginative, persistent, and aware of the value of education. Much of today's Air Force philosophy regarding air warfare can be directly attributed to these far-seeing men. A bibliography and index are appended, along with a glossary and other useful addenda dealing with World War II. Illustrated with well-chosen contemporary black-and-white photographs. David A. Lindsey, Lakewood Junior/High School, Wash.
