This was an impulse buy I saw the new Medal of Honor memorial at UW which includes Boyington and on my way past Magus Books saw the book in their window along with several others that I boughtI watched the TV show Baa Baa Black Sheep as a kid and went through a phase where I read a lot about military aircraft At age 9 I probably could rattle off the technical details of every WWII military plane or close to it American Japanese British German Italian My favorite was the Vought F4 Corsair featured in the book and the show The gull winged Corsair still is a favorite with the P 38 and P 45 close behindBoyington is interesting in autobiography than he was on the television show He comes across as a very flawed person who is aware of his flaws and also someone who is aware of his strengths I learned a number of new things about him that weren t mentioned in the television show The book is rough and vulgar and tough and determined and to the point much like its author and subject whose subject always has been himself But he offers a little hope at the end that he is finally changing for the better

Baa Baa Black Sheep Read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Gregory Boyington ´ 4 Free download Read Í PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Gregory Boyington The World War II air war in the Pacific needed tough men like Colonel Pappy Boyington and his Black Sheep Suadron The legendary Marine Corps officer and his bunch of misfits outcasts and daredevils gave new definition to hell. This book didn t grab me because of the writing ability of Gregory Boyington but I was hooked from page one There is no phony about this man and it is no wonder that he was a born leader He pulls no punches and tells everything the way that he sees it His personal accounts of the war and his opinions of the people he encountered there were mesmerizing I read it as a boy in 1977 and he was instantly one of my heroes His front page uote has stuck with me to this day Just name any hero and I ll prove he s a bum Boyington saw the world differently than anyone around him and even though he was in the military he pulled no punches about doing things his way and the world be damned His accounts about fighting his own demons such as alcohol were unbelievably honest and stark Even though he was obviously a drunken braggart at times I have no doubt that there is some truth in every single story he told and that to his death he would have fought anyone to defend the honor of his words I d recommend this book to anyone with interest in WWII or as an autobiography or a real man and a real American hero
