Summary
June 4, 1942, high above the tiny Pacific atoll of Midway. Lt. (j.g.) "Dusty" Kleiss burst out of the clouds and piloted his SBD Dauntless into a near-vertical dive aimed at the heart of Japan's Imperial Navy, which six months earlier had ruthlessly struck Pearl Harbor. Within a three-day period he became the only pilot from either side to land hits on three different ships, all of which sank-- losses that crippled the once-fearsome Japanese fleet. Now the Navy Cross recipient's full story is told for the first time, offering an intimate look at the fight for control of the Pacific in World War II
