http://www.amazon.com/Torpedo-Squadro... Written by Gerald W. Thomas of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Thomas' book about his 25 months of service with Torpedo Squadron Four is the only combat account of a World War II Torpedo Bomber pilot ever published. An outstanding read at 472 pages complete with 208 photographs. Crash landing accounts. Air strike accounts. 20 interviews and 5 combat journals. Torpedo Squadron Four - A Cockpit View of World War II puts you smack-dab into the hearts, minds, body, and soul of America's Greatest Generation. Torpedo Squadron Four - A Cockpit View of World War II was over 40 years in the making. While on the USS RANGER, Gerald W. Thomas participated in OPERATION LEADER, the most significant attack on Northern Europe by a US Navy carrier during World War II. During OPERATION LEADER and an attack on a freight barge carrying 40 tons of ammunition, anti-aircraft fire hit Thomas' plane. In spite of the considerable engine damage, the plane made it back to the USS RANGER, where Thomas had to crash land. That crash-landing was his 13th official carrier landing.
