Summary note
"The men whose images and stories are told in Wings of Valor reflect the courage and determination it takes to get no less than five "kills" in aerial combat and return from each mission alive. They distinguished themselves as Navy, Marine, U.S. Army Air Corps, and Air Force pilots who had the courage to pursue their enemy with aggression, agility, and precision. Wings of Valor immortalizes eighty-two men for their bravery during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam."--Provided by publisher.
