From the beginning, it was clear that Ralph Nutter was an exceptional navigator. Rapid promotion followed when he was assigned as Maj. Gen. Curtis the Eagle LeMay's personal navigator. Later, he was picked by Maj. Gen. Haywood Possum Hansell, the 20th Air Force Commander, to be his personal navigator. The author's vivid recollections of those halcyon years make for exciting, informative listening.
"As one who worked for General LeMay for six years, I found this book to be truly outstanding, a must read for anyone interested in leadership under intense pressure. The other books on LeMay cannot hold a candle to this one." (General David C. Jones, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff)
"Nothing like this book exists insofar as first person insights into the critical decisions and interaction of LeMay, Hansell, Norstad, and Arnold. Nutter's account fills a big void in the history of WWII aerial bombardment." (Gen. Russell Dougherty, USAF retired)
