Tuskegee Airman: The Biography of Charles E. McGee

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

Few dedicated individuals in any field ever achieve the extraordinary level of success attained by Colonel Charles E. McGee over the course of his phenomenal 30-year career as an active member of the U.S. Army Air Forces and (later) the U.S. Air Force. In addition to having served as a fighter pilot in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, Col. McGee holds the impressive record of the highest three-war total of fighter combat missions ever flown (409!) by any pilot in USAF history. He's also received numerous military honors including three Distinguished Flying Crosses, the Bronze Star, the Legion of Merit with Cluster, and the Air Medal (an amazing 25 times!). While his distinguished career is itself nothing short of remarkable, McGee accomplished all of this while facing relentless racial prejudices and harsh discrimination solely because of the color of his skin. McGee began his career with the legendary Tuskeegee Airmen, the celebrated squadron of African-American P-51 Mustang pilots known as the Red-Tail Angels. These brave servicemen became the only WWII escort group to never lose a single bomber to enemy aircraft. Over the course of the book's 256 pages, readers will admire McGee's intelligence, honor, fortitude, and resolve as he continually defied the impossible and set new standards from which all men and women have benefitted. An exceptional read of a truly extraordinary man.
