Description

For their outstanding contribution to the war in the South Pacific, the “Black Sheep” were awarded one of only two Presidential Unit Citations accorded to Marine Corps squadrons during the war in the Pacific.

Robert Taylor has brought to life an encounter over Rabaul in late December 1943, paying tribute to one of the US Marine Corps’ most famous fighter squadrons, and its outstanding leader. With the Japanese airbase at Rabaul visible in the distance, “Pappy” Boyington and his fellow pilots of VMF-214 tear into a large formation of Japanese Zekes and a series of deadly dogfights have started, one Zeke already fallen victim to their guns.
