Rocky Boyer's War
An Unvarnished History of the Air Blitz
That Won the War in the Southwest Pacific

This book is based off the wartime unauthorized diary of 1st Lt. Roscoe “Rocky” Boyer written by his son son Allen D. Boyer. His diary offers a wry, keen-eyed, and occasionally disgruntled counterpoint history of the hard-fought, air campaign in the Pacific. Boyer was drafted in the U.S. Army and assigned to the 5th Air Force (5th AF), 71st Tactical Reconnaissance Group (71st TRG) and sent overseas to the South West Pacific Area (SWPA).
