Lieutenant Colonel Robert H.
McCampbell, USAF (ret.) “is one of a handful of remaining World War II fighter pilots and one of a very few to fly both
Spitfires and Mustangs in combat. He was twice awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and earned a Purple Heart, an Air Medal,
and a Presidential Unit Citation.” Lieutenant Colonel Robert H. McCampbell is the author of An Ordinary
Guy in Extraordinary Times.
According to the book description of
An Ordinary Guy in Extraordinary Times, it is the “very personal story of the early Army Air
Corps and of the author's adventures piloting Spitfires and Mustangs. A young California boy whose thirst for flight was
fueled by Roscoe Turner and other great barnstormers of the 1930s, Robert McCampbell lived out his childhood dream in the
wartime skies of Europe flying from bases in North Africa, Corsica and Italy.”
