Korean Combat: The Four Freedoms Betrayed, A Fighter Pilot'S Diary (Volume 1)

A Fighter Pilot?s Diary The Four Freedoms Betrayed Instead of the promised peace and the Four Freedoms, the post WWII generation was sentenced to a lifetime of battles for freedom in foreign lands. Beginning in Korea then later in Vietnam, our adversary was our WWII ally, Soviet Russia. Some called this the ?Cold War.? These hot battles had a similar origin, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt?s embrace of Joe Stalin. Capt. Leue' tells of his journey from a naive teenager through the perils of naval flight training to combat veteran in Korea. He tells of the loss of countless shipmates along the way. He relates his frustrations over the firing of General MacArthur, fighting in battles that the country had determined we would not win, (however, you could die) and the realization that these wars were totally unnecessary. Why hadn?t we defeated the Communists with the Nazis in WWII instead of arming them?About the AuthorAbout the author Captain David Leue joined the Navy while a senior at Buffalo Technical High School. In his thirty-two year career he moved through the ranks from Apprentice Seaman to Captain.
