Chuck Yeager Book CoverBrimming with courage, Chuck Yeager became a national hero in 1947 when he became the first to fly an airplane faster than the speed of sound. Yet even before his days as America's most famous test pilot, Yeager was a young fighter ace in the US Army Air Forces, flying a P-51 Mustang over Nazi-occupied Europe. Now, in a new book just released on December 6, 2022, Don Keith tells the rest of this amazing story. In CHUCK YEAGER: WWII FIGHTER PILOT, Keith tells how Yeager's exploits are the stuff of legend. Soon after downing his first enemy fighter, Yeager, too, was shot down, surviving thanks to the help of the French Resistance and his own skills as a bomb maker-and earned a Bronze Star for saving the life of a fellow American. Against regulation, and only with the approval of General Eisenhower himself, Yeager returned to duty as a fighter pilot. While fiercely protecting Allied bombers, he became an "ace" and even shot down a lightning-fast Messerschmitt Me 262, the world's first jet-powered airplane.

In the new book CHUCK YEAGER: WWII FIGHTER PILOT, prolific author Don Keith tells the rest of the true story of how this American hero first proved he had the right stuff. See more and purchase a copy HERE.
