This account of their contribution in the Korean War is written from a citizen/sailor viewpoint. Reserve fighter squadron VF-871 from Naval Air Station Oakland, California, is followed from the authors call to active duty in July 1950 and his preparation and service in Korea aboard the aircraft carrier Princeton, to his release to inactive duty in September 1951. Cooper candidly evaluates the squadrons performance based on the quality and depth of training and notes the continuing drama surrounding the 38th Parallel. A formal peace treaty has never been signed and the two sides remain technically at war. The beat goes on.
