This is a delightful biography about one of the most remarkable fighter leaders of the Second World War: Hubert "Hub" Zemke. The unit he commanded from 1942 to 1944 - the 56th Fighter Group of the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) - flew the P-47 Thunderbolt in combat over Europe, and, through trial and error, became the top-scoring U.S. fighter group against the Luftwaffe. The author, as a young, aviation-mad 16-year old in Britain, had the good fortune to see Colonel Zemke in 1944 when given permission one day to cut grass for free (later used for winter feed for his father's livestock) on the 56th's airbase, which wasn't far from where he lived. More than 3 decades later, the author had the opportunity to visit Zemke in the U.S. and interview him about his military service. This book is the result, an abiding labor of love. Very well-written and easy to read, "Zemke's Wolf Pack" conveys the immediacy of aerial combat and the pressures of wartime life. Any aviation enthusiast will love this book.
