The Marines' Lost Squadron: The Odyssey of
Finally, there is a book that reveals the truth about the worst air disaster to strike a Marine Corps fighter squadron during the Second World War. Marine Fighter Squadron 422 was a group of twenty-four typical young Americans trained to fly the famous F4U Corsair into combat with the legendary Japanese Zero. When they arrived in the Pacific, they suddenly found that not all their enemies carried guns in savage Banzai charges. Their two most dangerous and merciless adversaries were the fury of a tropical typhoon and the cold heartless whims of a Marine Corps general. Together, these two foes seal the fate of VMF-422 and cause the greatest disaster ever to strike a Marine squadron. Aviation historian Mark Carlson has written the first full account of a group of ordinary young men who were suddenly challenged beyond their experience and which forever changed the lives of the survivors. The Marines’ Lost Squadron is the dramatic true story of a desperate and courageous fight for survival against the forces of nature and a conspiracy of silence. The Marines’ Lost Squadron is a saga of courage and conspiracy, patriotism and pride, fate and futility in a struggle to survive the ferocity of a huge typhoon in the midst of the Second World War.

Navy Marine F-4U Corsair WW2 Korea War
The F4U Corsair was the 1st single engine plane to reach over 400 MPH in level flight. Known as the Hog, Bent Wing, and to the Japanese, Whistling Death, this plane was just amazing. The designers wanted to use a 13 ft prop on a 2000 hp radial engine and their solution to keep the prop from hitting the ground was the bent the wings in a invert gull layout. Between the F6F and the F4u, the Japanese planes were doomed. The next war, Korea, the F4U was very effective as a bomber and fighter and was credited with shooting down a mig.

‘It has everything a war memoir should have’ LEN DEIGHTON‘OF ALL THE AIRCRAFT I HAD EVER SEEN, THESE WERE THE MOST WICKED-LOOKING B*STARDS. THE CORSAIR LOOKED TRULY VICIOUS …’In 1942 Norman Hanson learnt to fly the Royal Navy’s newest fighter: the US-built Chance Vought Corsair. Fast, rugged and demanding to fly, it was an intimidating machine. But in the hands of its young Fleet Air Arm pilots it also proved to be a lethal weapon.Posted to the South Pacific aboard HMS Illustrious, Hanson and his squadron took the fight to the Japanese. Facing a desparate and determined enemy, Kamikaze attacks and the ever-present dangers of flying off a pitching carrier deck, death was never far away.Brought to life in vivid, visceral detail, Carrier Pilot is one of the finest aviator’s memoirs of the war; an awe-inspiring, thrilling, sometimes terrifying account of war in the air.PRAISE FOR CARRIER PILOT'Just outstanding.
