Can’t say these fit in the Essential Book thread so this thread is for what is on your lap or laptop now.
Just finished reading “Baa Baa Black Sheep” again after something like twenty/twenty-five years.
In my opinion you should read this book before you read any other book about Boyington. This is a reprint of a book that was written in 1958 about his experiences, before, during, and even after the war. I am not saying his accounts are 100% accurate but imo reading this book first will allow you to take into account his perspective of the events without solely relying on the contemporary author’s biases, negative or positive.
