10 Myths: Like
Editor’s note: As predicted, Barrett Tillman’s “Ten Aviation Myths of WW II” (February 2018) generated a number of “likes” and “don’t likes.” All myths have their supporters and their detractors, and we’ve presented views from both sides below.
Barrett, your article in the latest Flight Journal on the myths of World War II was outstanding. I particularly liked your intro about the Marines’ top ace being Joe Foss and putting Pappy Boyington in his proper place on the USMC ace list. Hopefully, some readers will pick up a copy of your book on WW II USMC squadrons to read your lengthier writing on the topic. Bravo Zulu! Thanks for your service and your comments, Skip.—BD
