Synopsis

"From flight training, Bruce Porter's aeronautical skills as a Marine day- and night-fighter pilot defined the term fighter ace! Bruce's book reflects the keen, analytical mind of a fighter pilot's technical skills projected into combat. This book is a 'must' for anyone interested in combat aviation history." Col Jeff De Blanc, Marine Medal of Honor recipient "[In his book], Bruce relives the challenges, frustrations, and triumphs of training, on to his victories in the Corsair in the Solomons, and then on to attain ace status with a flourish at Okinawa. Read and enjoy a fabulous Marine aviation combat story." BriGen Joe Foss, Marine Medal of Honor recipient "Bruce Porter's book is great! It shows the many details and answers many questions about operating from an aircraft carrier. . . . It explains why, even without enemy action, steady operations under poor conditions will cost us pilots and aircraft. . . . I highly recommend Ace!" BriGen Bob Galer, Marine Medal of Honor recipient "You have to read this excellent book. It will keep you glued to the pages as you sit in the cockpit with Bruce. . . . It is very well written and personal." Col Jim Swett, Marine Medal of Honor recipient "Bruce Porter's book, Ace!, tells of our flying Wildcats together before Pearl Harbor, about his Corsair victories in the Solomon Islands, and his splendid night flying from Okinawa. I highly recommend Ace!" LtCol Ken Walsh, Marine Medal of Honor recipient
