144 CARROLL, Ward Punk's War. First Printing in dustjacket
Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, MD, 2001, ISBN:1557502366 
CARROLL, Ward. Punk's War. Annapolis, Maryland : Naval Institute Press, (2001). First Printing. Pp (6),vii,(3),1-224,(6). 8vo, black cloth, metallic red lettering to spine. "From the opening chapter where a Tomcat fighter squadron's commanding officer botches the intercept of a hostile Iranian F-4 to the final uplifting scene. Ward Carroll reveals the inner workings of today's military as only an insider can. Punk's War is a high-tech thriller, afighter pilot's story as riveting as it is honest. Written in the tone of the quixotic lieutenants who populate its pages, this novel vividly illustrates the pressures on the new generation of war fighters. Along the way thebook introduces an engaging cast of characters: a self-centered squadron c ommander hell-bent on fixing his tainted professional reputation; a reluctant air-wing commander more suited for life within the walls of the Pentagonthan on a flight deck at sea; a battle-group commander trained in the art of drivng ships, now thrust into the snap-decision matrix of supersonic jets; and a host of junior officers. Seeking only the ideals they were promised, these technology-savvy aviators are products of pop culture, inimpresed by rank for its own sake and unresponsive to petitions in the name of the professison's lofty motoes. But for all of its irreverence, Punk's War is a loving tribue to those called to service during an unsteady peace and a definitive statement about why flying fighters for a living remains among the most noble of professions." (from the dj). . Very good in dustjacket. Signed, without inscription, by Carroll. 50.00

"In 1943 RAF Bomber Command was losing planes and aircrew at an alarming rate on its nighttime missions over Germany and occupied Europe. Volunteers across Canada answered thecall to duty. This is the story of one of those who served and survived ag ainst almost impossible odds. Andrew Carswell grew up in Toronto and, shortly after his eighteenth birthday, enlisted and began the training that would soon qualify him to fly a Lancaster bomber. On his fourth operational mission his plane was shot down over Germany. Andrew and his crew bailed out of the burning airplane just before it crashed in flames. Alone and unarmed,bu unhurt, Andrew found himself deep in forest on a bitterly cold night. H e was taken prisoner, as were four other members of his crew, and spent thenext three years as a prisoner of war in eastern Poland at Stalag VIIIB. H is account of life in the camp and his two daring excapes form the heart ofthis fascinating story of a boy sent to do a man's job. He risked death da ily yet never gave up and never lost hope. He was finally liberated by Montgomery's Second Army in 1945 and returned to England. This is Andrew's story, but it is also the story of tens of thousands of Canadians of his generation who were proud to serve their country in its hour of greatest need."--from rear cover.
