Intrepid Aviators is a saga about courage and sacrifice, about ordinary men who, day in and day out, performed their duty, pressing home bombing and torpedo attacks in the face of intense enemy opposition. The book is a true story about flying of the most dangerous kind - aircraft carrier combat operations in World War II - and a testament to the virtues of disciplined preparation and teamwork. It is also a lesson in human resiliency and the primacy of chance in life and war. I hope you derive as much inspiration from reading this narrative about the extrordinary naval band of brothers known as Torpedo 18 as I did in researching and writing it.
