This book, the first to describe the air war in Korea, weaves its story around the Australian 77th Squadron whose pilots took off for battle on 2nd July 1950 as fighter escorts for American bombers and thus became the first servicemen of the British Commonwealth to see action in the Korean conflict. Probably never before have Australian and American airmen worked so closely together as in Korea. This book also tells of how this Australian Fighter Squadron has aided American, British Commonwealth, Turkish, South Korean and other United Nations troops in close support missions. UNCOMMON in Dust-Jacket.
