Major Ralph H. Wandrey, USAF (ret.) is the author of Fighter Pilot.  The MOAA said of the book, “The true story of Wandrey’s experiences as an ace combat pilot in World War II. Stationed in the South Pacific, “Iron Pants” Wandrey flew P-47s and P-38s against Japanese installations and provided fighter coverage for America bombers during their raids. His book is packed with scenes of dog fighting and near-death at the hands of enemy planes in some of the fiercest fighting of the war, but it is also the story of another kind of survival, of the triumph of quick-wittedness, good humor, and bravery against more private enemies – boredom, frustration, fear, and uncertainty.”
