Adventures of a P38 Ace

February 14, 2006

by Herbert E. Ross 

Editorial Reviews



Adventures of a P38 Ace is a most interesting story of a young American boy who became a Distinguished Fighter Pilot as well as serving his country in many other ways. The shooting down of an enemy aircraft and taking of another person s life can be a most unforgettable event. There is no animosity toward the enemy fighter pilot, but it becomes a very serious contest of who can best his opponent. It is win, or lose your life. This autobiography is a history of the lessons learned while making the invasion of Europe successful, and the defeat of Germany possible, with considerably less loss of lives. Additionally, it tells of the advancement as well as development of new and better aircraft and weapons systems. The first fighter aircraft Ross flew was a P-36, with a top speed of about 250 mph. The last were fighters capable of Mach 2, about 1,400 mph, and with mid-air refueling, could deliver an atomic weapon to any place in the world. --Weston Ament Captain, TWA Airlines, Retired
