I really liked this book. a lot of interesting things going on, although a short book. which made it great to read. I liked it as my dad flew B29's in the Pacific. It gave me insight on that. Also the battle of Iwo Jima gave insight as to why the atom bombs were used. I highly recommend this book...

“History sometimes serves fascinating slices of irony. With the news emerging in 1945 of the Nazi atrocities against Jews half a world away, how ironic that the war’s final mission would be flown by a couple of Jewish pilots from New York and New Jersey, and that the final combat life in the defe...

Brief, too many diversions about issues unrelated to the Captain. Disappointed in author's writing capability. I felt he was writing for high school students-the forties, my generation. After all the publicity and hype "The Last Fighter Pilot" was a disappointment. Jim, Wilmette

Don Brown’s The Last Fighter Pilot is an engaging and interesting account of the last days of World War II. It begins with the fight for Iwo Jima, and ends with the dropping of the atomic bombs and the final surrender of Japan a few days later. I thought I was well versed in the events of World...

Everyone with the slightest interest in the Pacific battles of WWII should read this book. Anyone who wants to support our WWII veterans should read this book. The Last Fighter Pilot is already a National Bestseller and the NY Post is declaring it a must-read book. I'm totally with them on that c...

How does it feel to be the very last pilot to fight an air battle in a great war? The Last Fighter Pilot told me exactly what is was like since this book is about his experience as a pilot flying out of Iwo Jima during the war against Japan. Until this book all I knew about Iwo Jima was that it t...
