After the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, Jim, “Jug” Curran signed up for combat. He flew with the 348th Fighter Group, the first P-47 Thunderbolt group in the South Pacific. The aircraft would go on to be instrumental in winning the war in the Pacific. From New Guinea to the Philipines, Jug flew 200 combat missions and in this book tells the incredible true story of all he encountered. With so few living soldiers from World War II to tell their stories, books like this become all the more important.
