In my reviews I try neither to persuade nor to dissuade others. I believe the art of reading is a very personal experience and that my opinion should not intrude upon others enjoyment. I merely state how I felt while reading and I will allow others to decide for themselves. This is why I will not present a play-by-play description. I will only offer a few basic details to help you decide if what I present is worth your time.
Red Tails: The Tuskegee Airmen and Operation Halyard:An All-New Update for The Forgotten 500:A Penguin eSpecial from NAL Caliber - Gregory A. Freeman This is an add-on chapter published in book form for the book "The Forgotten 500" (a book by the same author detailing the rescue of over 500 MIA airmen in Yugoslavia during WWII). It is a factual account of one of the most daring rescues behind enemy lines ever performed. This "add-on" details the involvement of the Tuskegee airman as they provided air support to some of the rescue planes.

Most of this book retells in limited detail the facts in "The Forgotten 500" story (I'm only guessing since I haven't read the first book yet). A small portion of this offering (it's a very quick read) relates the history of the Tuskegee pilots as well as their involvement in this operation.

It is well worth reading.

It should have earned 4 stars from me due to its brevity, but I love the Tuskegee airman and they always deserve 5 stars for everything they've done!
