Vraciu Review

My book, Fighter Pilot: The World War II Career of Alex Vraciu, received a positive review in the September 2010 issue of the Indiana Magazine of History. In its "Review Notices" section, the magazine noted about the book:

"This volume . . . is a delightful telling of [Alex] Vraciu's experiences as a Hellcat fighter pilot . . . in the Pacific during the Second World War. The informative and, at times, humorous story balances the day-to-day drudgery with the high action of battle. Illustrated with well-chosen photographs from the National Archives and Vraciu's personal collection, this book is an excellent addition to any home or library."

Published continuously since 1905, the IMH is one of the nation's oldest historical journals. Since 1913, the IMH has been edited and published quarterly at Indiana University, Bloomington. Today, the IMH features peer-reviewed historical articles, research notes, annotated primary documents, reviews, and critical essays that contribute to public understanding of midwestern and Indiana history.
