This book is NOT politically correct! It is a true story of what it was like for a tough little Irish blue-collar worker who goes AWOL from the Army to join the Air Force in WWII. He is a hard working enlisted man who never backs down from a fight but hates authority and incompetent officers. He loves women from California to England and North Africa. He is a maverick through and through!
