E-copy of a book I have owned for years and that I reread constantly.
“Captain Eddie” details his time with the Hat in the Ring Squadron.
Excellent read and highly recommended for anyone with an interest in American air operations.

Eddie's book is most certainly a must read no matter who actually wrote it.

I have a ghostwriter. I wish he'd stop. I never hired him, and he's not very good.

Poet Laureate? Gentlemen, you honour me. Now then, does that honour come with a stipend or consideration or gratuity of some sort - an emolument if you will? Not wishing to sound gauche mind you, but papa needs a new set of quills.
