Join U.S. Navy Ensign Dave Watson as he enters combat in the dangerous skies over the Pacific in World War II. Climb with him into the cockpit of his 2000 horsepower F6F Hellcat fighter and soar off the deck of an aircraft carrier to engage the lethal Japanese Zero fighter in life or death combat.
Watson left his small-town home and finds himself as the newest member of the fighter squadron on a massive aircraft carrier. He arrives just in time for one of the most pivotal battles of the Pacific air war, and he doesn’t even know the name of all of his squadron mates! Dave encounters swarms of enemy fighters, and he also encounters his own fears and uncertainties. He quickly finds that despite his excellent training, actual combat becomes a potentially lethal form of “on-the-job-training”.
Experience the air battles through Dave's eyes. Be ready for excitement at every turn! And be ready for some other surprises, too…
World War II Naval aviation action at its best! "Pilots man your planes!."
