Edward Connor was barely out of high school when he joined the U.S. Army Air Corps before the beginning of World War II. After Pearl Harbor was attacked, he and thousands of other young men were quickly trained to conduct the air campaign in the Pacific. Stationed first in Australia and then in New Guinea, Connor describes his wartime experiences. He also describes his two decades of service in the U.S. Air Force as an electronic warfare officer — a "Raven." In his straightforward memoir, Connor recounts some of the most harrowing events experienced by a young man looking to serve his country and survive a terrible war.
