Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Based in part on an unauthorized diary kept by the author's father, 1st Lt. Roscoe "Rocky" Boyer, this narrative history offers the reader an account of Allied air commander Gen. George Kenney's "air blitz" offensive in the Southwest Pacific. At airfields on the front line, Rocky kept the radios working for the 71st Tactical Reconnaissance Group, a fighter-bomber unit. The author uses Rocky's story as a jumping-off point from which to understand the daily life, pranks, mishaps, and casualties, of the men who in 1944 fought their way over the two thousand miles from New Guinea to the Philippines."--Provided by publisher.
