About this title:

Synopsis: (Regular price $34.99 - new, first edition, autographed by author, double-wrapped, direct from publisher) General Felex Michael Rogers, USAF (ret): "A scholarly work . . . a tour de force." - Dr. Michael Martin, Historian and Civil War author: "The last book on the air war in WWII that I added to my library was Donald Miller's Masters of the Air, and while that was a superb read, The Oranges are Sweet is easily equal to, if not superior, to Dr. Miller's effort." - Major Jon Dowty, USAF: "An excellent presentation . . . As a history of the WWII fighter pilot, the book is exceptional and potentially unequalled." - Dr. Charles Dobbs, Professor, Dept. of History, Iowa State University: "The Oranges are Sweet is a really fine work . . . Beerbower's story is little known and deserves great publicity." - Dr. Daniel Haulman, Chief Historian, Air Force Historical Research Agency: "excellent . . . It is well worth reading." - RAF Group Captain Jerry King (ret): ". . . a splendid tribute to a great aviator." - Bud Deeds, Beerbower's last wingman: "I will treasure the book for the rest of my life." ----- The Oranges are Sweet is the life story of a major American fighter pilot in WWII. When Don Beerbower died in 1944 he was the leading ace in the Ninth AF and, at age twenty-two, commanded the 353rd FS, 354th FG. This unit is credited with more aerial victories than any other squadron in the USAAF in WWII. The Oranges are Sweet is a serious study of an important figure in U.S. military aviation history, and the men who fought with him. Spread throughout this 480 page hardcover book, the reader will find over 200 color and b/w images and 12 maps. Numerous primary source documents such as Beerbower's diary, letters, encounter reports, family, pilot/ground crew interviews, newspaper accounts, etc., provide important new detail to a story about remembrance, courage, duty, leadership, and love.
