Review

"Compelling . . . Johnson is bound to return to his rightful place of recognition in the top tier of American fighter aces and World War II combat leaders."


“In
Jungle Ace, John Bruning tells the long overdue story of Col. Gerald Johnson, one of the Pacific’s top aces and one of the war’s top air commanders. Bruning has a gift for painting high-speed aerial action in swift, accurate strokes that put the reader in the cockpit. Jungle Ace is an action-packed story, filled with the screaming high tension of conflict and the poignant agony of a comrade’s sudden death. This gripping account makes you realize how tough a war it was, and Johnson's letters home are a vivid reminder that ordinary men rose to extraordinary heights to survive it.”

John R. Bruning's latest book, "Race of Aces: WWII's Elite Airmen and the Epic Battle to Become the Master of the Sky" will be published by Hachette Book Group this January 14th. It chronicles the extraordinary story of five fighter pilots who competed furiously in the national spotlight to become America's ace of aces during World War II.

John is the collaborating writer or author of twenty-two non-fiction books, including four New York Times best sellers. A graduate of the University of Oregon, John was given a Department of Defense's Thomas Jefferson Award for best article by a photojournalist in 2010 after he wrote about a forced landing in the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan. He was embedded with 2-162 Infantry, Oregon National Guard during the stability and support operation in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in September 2005.

John lives in Independence, Oregon with his two kids, a couch-eating Jordanian dog and a cat who enjoys swimming, hiking in the Cascades, and bossing everyone around.
