Blessed with luck and stubborn independence, he lived a life that went beyond what one would expect in the most imaginative fiction. He became a Marine aviation cadet in 1936 but because of chronic indebtedness and unconventional behavior, he was "encouraged" to resign. But, before the Corps could kick him out, he signed up for a volunteer group training pilots to help the Chinese with their war with Japan. Shortly after, he returned to the U.S. and with fighter pilots in desperate need, the Corps grudgingly let him back in and promptly sent him to the South Pacific. After several setbacks, including a broken leg acquired in a drunken brawl, Boyington put together a group of fighter pilots and was fast dubbed The Black Sheep squadron. Their heroics were fast recognized and after finally being shot down and held prisoner, Boyington eventually returned to the U.S. with a hero's welcome and a Medal of Honor.

This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. 2016 Random House Publishing. At age 24, Churchill was convinced it was his destiny to become prime minister of England one day. To achieve this goal, he believed he must do something spectacular on the battlefield. Despite putting himself in extreme danger as a British Army officer in the colonial wars in India and Sudan, and as a journalist covering a Cuban uprising, glory and fame had eluded him. In 1899 he arrived in South Africa to cover the brutal colonial war the British were fighting with Boer rebels. Two weeks after his arrival the soldiers he was accompanying on a train were ambushed and Churchill was taken prisoner. He pulled off a daring escape traversed hundreds of miles through enemy territory with a wad of cash, four bits of chocolate, and his wits to guide him. As if his escape was not incredible enough, he enlisted and returned to South Africa and ultimately helped liberate the men he was previously imprisoned with. This book is an epic story of bravery, historical characters, including Kipling and Gandhi, and unbelievable bravery.
