You have to be a fighter pilot to truly appreciate this book. Our society doesn't breed warriors anymore like the ones Robin describes and the ones he flew with.
Nickel on the grass
The story is one of the greatest adventures of our time! The life of Robin Olds is the stuff of movies. A fighter ace who married a movie star and was friends with John Wayne and Lawrence Rockefeller.
The narration was so well done that at times you thought you were listening to Robin Olds himself.
The author wrote with a style which took you to the places and made it seem as if you were actually witnessing the events as they actually happened.
This is definitely a book which can be listened to more than once.
Incredible story of American fighting spirit and leadership. If you are a fan of military aviation this book is a must listen. If you are a leadership fan this book is also full of many pearls of wisdom. General Olds is my new hero!
