Joe Foss, Flying Marine, first published in 1943, is the account of World War II Marine flying ace Joe Foss (1915-2003). Beginning with his childhood on a South Dakota farm, Flying Marine tells the story of Foss's 63 days on Guadalcanal during which time he shot down 26 Japanese planes, equaling the World War I record of Eddie Rickenbacker, forced landings and rescues, and bouts of malaria.
