Test of Battle
Having the advantage of a father who served in the Air
Service during World War 1, I was brought up hearing
about his experiences first at Kelly Field in Texas and
later in France. Because of this experience I have always
had a keen interest in anything pertaining to aviation.
My first exposure to Mr. Whitson's writings was when
I read his third book Apprentice Warrior, was completely
hooked on Mr. Whitson's writing.
I very eagerly waited for his next book, Test of Battle,
and upon first reading that book almost immediately read
it through a second time. If I ever felt that I had read
a book, in the past, Test of Battle revealed a perfectly
crafted style of writing as well as completely accurate
If a 6th star were available this is where I would put
my personal recommendation. I would also note that the
authors reference to clairvoyance, or intuition, very
interesting. As a serving infantryman in the U. S. Marine
Corps, I can recall similar experiences here to for I
would have written off as pure luck.
