            During the Battle of Midway in June 1942, US Navy dive bomber pilot Wade McClusky proved himself to be one of the greatest pilots and combat leaders in American history, but his story has never been told - until now. It was Wade McClusky who remained calm when the Japanese fleet ...was not where it was expected to be. It was he who made the counterintuitive choice to then search to the north instead of to the south. It was also McClusky who took the calculated risk of continuing to search even though his bombers were low on fuel and may not have enough to make it back to the Enterprise. His ability to remain calm under enormous pressure played a huge role in the US Navy winning this decisive victory that turned the tide of war in the Pacific. This book is the story of exactly the right man being in exactly the right place at exactly the right time. Wade McClusky was that man and this is his story.

            *** THE FIRST OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE RED ARROWS *** It's now over 50 years since the Red Arrows first took to the skies, transfixing the British public with their astonishing displays of daredevil precision and aerial aerobatics. Manned by some of the best pilots in the world, t...heir jaw-dropping displays are world-famous, and their incredible aerial feats have cemented their status as national treasures. The Red Arrows represent the very best speed, agility and precision of the Royal Air Force, and the pilots behind the planes are rigorously selected for their nerves of steel, lightning reflexes, and millisecond-perfect timing. Each one has years of distinguished service in the Royal Air Force under their belts, and plenty of stores to tell. Written by the head of the Red Arrows, Wing Commander David Montenegro, himself a former Red 1 and Red Arrows squadron leader, and full of never-before-shared tales from Red Arrows pilots, past and present, this official history celebrates the courage, daring and incredible skill of the Red Arrows and the heroic pilots that push their planes, their flying skills, and themselves to the limits.
