Boys became men in weeks and many became commanders and leaders before the age of twenty-five. These young pilots were flying for their lives on every dangerous sortie and in every type of aircraft.

From the heavy bomber struggling to its target in the German Ruhr to the shipboard fighter fired into combat by a carriers catapult in the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean, every pilot honed his skills to take on the enemy and survive. They were all brave men - but some have become legends. Pilots like Guy Gibson - leader of the famous Dam Busters raid- Don Gentile - an ace in the Mustang fighter defending allied heavy bombers deep over enemy Europe- John Cats Eyes Cunningham - top scoring night-fighter ace- or Leon W. Johnson - leader of the low-level raid on Ploesti oil refinery complex in Romania.

These are some of the hundred heroes included in this compact reference to the history and record of allied and enemy aces of World War II.
