American RCAF Warriors


American RCAF Warriors is about the more than 8,000 American men who had a dream of becoming pilots during WW II.

Looking at 75 of those men, this book provides the stories of those who wanted to fight, and who served in a foreign uniform to do so. Some remained with the RCAF throughout their careers, some served for several years before transferring over to the US Army Air Forces once America had entered the war, and some only trained with the Canadians before serving in the US military.

Regardless of their length of service, each man owed Canada a great debt of accepting and training them for what they truly wanted – to fly and to fight.
