Aces High. The Heroic Saga of the Two Top-Scoring American Aces of World War II

Серия: "-"

They were two of the greatest heroes of World War II. But only one could be top gun... Capturing the hearts of a beleaguered nation, the fighter pilots of World War II engaged in a kind of battle that became the stuff of legend and those who survived showdowns earned the right to be called aces. But two men in particular rose to become something more. Richard Dick Bong was a bashful, pink-faced farm boy from the Midwest. Thomas Tommy McGuire was a wise-cracking, fast-talking kid from New Jersey. What they shared was an unparalleled gallantry under fire which earned them each the Medal of Honor. What they had between them was a closely watched rivalry to see who would emerge as the top-scoring American ace of the war. What they left behind is a legacy and a record of aerial victories that has yet to be surpassed anywhere in the world.
