Frontline Airline: Troop Carrier Pilot in World War II

Book Review:

"Bob Lester Flew the C-47 Skytrain and the C-46 Commando in a Troop Carrier Group of the 5th Air Force from New Guinea to Japan, putting paratroopers and gliders into combat behind enemy lines, transporting the wounded back from battle, and maintaining a supply conduit. Lester presents his personal experiences, from induction and cadet training, touching on many aspects of a military life fifty years ago: fun (on and off duty); thrills and dangers of piloting; marriage; and even a brush with General MacArthur! His 'vignettes' are often humorous, providing glimpses into the reality of life during war. Frontline Airline is terrific reading!" -- Midwest Book Review
