Seized by an urge to learn flying Robert Alexander Winston would not be put off by the high fees charged by the private firms; he decided to join the nascent Naval Air Service in 1935. In this fast paced, witty and engaging memoir he describes his time spent as a Naval Cadet in learning to fly at the NAS Pensacola. He passed his carrier qualification aboard USS Saratoga, before being assigned to Fighting Squadron 6 flying off the USS Enterprise. His four term hitch in the Navy ended in 1939 and he entered the Naval Reserve. Robert A. Winston was born in Washington, Indiana, in 1907 and graduated from Indiana University. He worked for The New York Times and The New York News for five years before starting flight training with the navy in 1935. He flew in fighting squadrons on both coasts and as an instructor at Pensacola, and he wrote about his initial aviation training in Dive Bomber, published in 1939 when Winston held the rank of lieutenant. In his second book, Aces Wild, he chronicled his experiences in Europe during 1939-40 as a test pilot accompanying a consignment of fighters destined for Finland. Back on active duty in the United States, he served as a flight instructor, then in the public relations office in Washington, D.C. After the attack on Pearl Harbor he was assigned to combat duty in the Pacific, which he recounts in Fighting Squadron, published in 1946 when Winston was a commander. At the end of the war he was serving on Admiral Nimitz’s staff on Guam. From there he moved to Stockholm, where he served as the naval air attaché.

Even though the concept of a black soldier actually being allowed to be a real soldier and go into combat his accomplishments are still often ignored. His/her achievements are still overlooked unless he dies in combat or accomplishes something extremely unusual. The black soldier still suffers adversity and animosity both in wars and in his private life. Our documents are erased or viciously omitted. Yet African American soldiers continually dare to dream of a better life as they fight for justice and equality at home and abroad.

Three weeks after Imperial Japan’s surrender, five men dressed in baggy khaki uniforms stared at the camera. They and two colleagues were the only survivors out of the 210 Allied airmen which Imperial Japan had imprisoned in “paradise.” Joining them were 18 British soldiers, the only survivors of 600 of their countrymen similarly but separately imprisoned. Another 10,000 Allied soldiers and civilians were also imprisoned on the South Pacific island of New Britain. More than half died before liberation. What motivated such inhumane treatment? This book’s quest for an answer traces the genesis of Bushido, Imperial Japan’s martial code, and surveys the prisoners’ recollections of their ordeal as the Battle for Rabaul raged around them from 1942 to March 1944.

Jimmie Angel was a noted American aviator who discovered Angel Falls in Venezuela—the tallest waterfall in the world. Yet after twenty years of searching for more about the man, the author finds that there are many aspects of his legendary life that are still unknown. Jimmie Angel was a man who was controversial during his life and remains to be so to this day. Angel’s Flight is a marker on the path to resolving the mysteries of Jimmie Angel’s life, and author Karen Angel, Jimmie’s niece, gathers together the verifiable history of the life of Jimmie Angel and his pursuit of the lost River of Gold and his discovery in 1933 of the tallest waterfall on planet Earth. But did he learn to fly when he was only fourteen years old? Did he work as an aviation scout for Lawrence of Arabia during the Arab Revolt (1916–18), create an air force for a Chinese warlord in the Gobi Desert, or work as a test pilot for Italian airplane designer Giovanni Battista Caproni?
