  • The Indestructible Man

    A True Story of World War II

    Dixie Kiefer was a true World War II hero. First man to fly an airplane off a ship at night. XO on the carrier Yorktown at Coral Sea and Midway. Skipper of Ticonderoga when she came under brutal attack by Japanese kamikaze planes. Star in an Academy Award-winning motion picture. Through it all, he performed coolly and heroically, leading his men through hell and back. But “Captain Dixie” was much more. 

    Now, for the first time, Don Keith and David Rocco tell the full story of this pioneering hero who inspired not only the men with whom he served but an entire nation at war.

    "...an amazing and horribly ironic story brought to life by Don Keith and David Rocco."
