Re­veal­ing Truk

Flight Journal - - EDITORIAL - Mick Mor­ris­sey

I was es­pe­cially pleased to see Thomas McKelvey Cleaver’s piece “De­stroy Truk!” in the April 2018 is­sue. I’ve been read­ing avi­a­tion his­tory and WW II his­tory since I was old enough to read, some 60-plus years, and I have a spe­cial in­ter­est in the war in the Pa­cific. I have read about the at­tacks on Truk in many books and count­less ar­ti­cles, but this is the first one I’ve seen that has pho­tos with suf­fi­ciently wide an­gles to ac­tu­ally see what the place looked like. We’re with you, Mick. These are the first over­all pho­tos we’ve seen as well.—BD
