Tales of a War Pilot

This book is the biography of Richard C. Kirkland who flew the P-38 Lightning in the 49th Fighter Group in the South-West Pacific Area (SWPA).

Chapter 3 "Escape from the Stone Age" details the saga of fellow pilot 2nd Lt Richard S. Strommen who bailed out of P-38G Lightning 42-12709 and later returned to duty.
