I really enjoyed Wings of Valor. Each story had a unique setting and twist. Taken together they paint a picture of the brave and innovative men and women involved in aviation. Jack's read brought it all to life and kept me in the moment.
Interesting, adventurous, & educational
I would compare Wings of Valor to many different great aviation books I've read over the years. Some of the stories about unique bomb types were very intriguing.
Clancy is passionate about the material and has good skills building the characters. He makes more a great listen!
I highly recommend this book!

This is just a collection of emailed questions and miscellaneous stories that turn out to be mostly harmless. There are 1 or 2 decent ones in there but it supplies about 15 minutes of pleasure and about an hour and a half of pain.
