Remembering Navy Flyers of WWII
May 1, 2001
Reviewer: Joan T. Hollier from Georgetown, TX USA
Alan C. Carey insures that those who fought with Navy Liberator and Privateer squadrons in the Pacific will not be forgotten heroes. The work reflects the scholarly research and careful documentation expected of a historian. Carey found some WWII veterans reluctant to tell their stories, and for some it is already too late. After researching his father's story, he went on to bring other brave men the recognition they deserve. In writing this book, he provides ready reference to anyone who had family or friends flying with the squadrons but never heard their stories. His book acknowledges the historic record to remind us of those who died so we may be free.



We Flew Alone Sheds light on unsung WWII Squadrons
Fernando Ortiz Jr.
Corpus Christi Caller-Times
February 18, 2001
First of two volumes puts face on flyers who fought and died in the Central and Southwest Pacific

An excellent exploration of U.S. Navy bombing squadrons. His sentiments, which are central to his writing's straightforward elegance and his mastery of a mountain of detail, are eloquently encapsulated in his forward and perfectly explain the power of this exceptional work. Carey doesn't just list squadrons but rather gives life to the men who comprised them. He paints a vivid portrait of tremendous night attacks and endless patrols over forbidding stretches of ocean, of bombing runs at dawn and breathtaking air battles as warships explode far below, of fiery crashes and unexplained disappearances.
