USMC Aviatiors

Marine Corps airmen in the Pacific 1941-1945


With his new book, Gregory Pons invites us to discover the aviators of the legendary US Marine Corps in the Pacific. This volume contains seven chapters, each named for a different squadron, and the personal memoirs, flight log books, and photo albums of the men who served in it. Through these words and photos, as well as many outstanding never-before-published photographs, the author enables the reader to share in the daily lives of these men as they experience training and combat. With its colorful plane profiles, original documents, and reconstructions detailing the flight equipment of these men, this book is the first of its kind about US Marine aviation.
