By Jim Guthrie, Central Oregon This is a genuine and heartfelt tale about an extraordinary man, who always weighed the odds and did his absolute best, regardless of the circumstances. It is my honor to have read a story about a fictional character who was just that. I love this book! Thank you, Mr. Uva, for an outstanding story! Semper Fi! 2 of 3 people found the following review helpful. Marines don't only storm beaches - they bring the thunder in the sky as well! By Nathan Mercer Tippy: Tales of Flying Sergeants by Michael Uva is a tale of a backwoods mechanic turned Marine auto mechanic turned pilot turned war hero turned pastor. That seems like a lot of twists and turns, but Michael Uva spins a tale that anyone who loves military stories should read.Typically, Marine enlisted men are not pilots - officers are. But during WW II, necessity meant that rules were more like guidelines. Thus, enlisted Marines were thrust into the pilot seats with little formal training and expected to uphold the Marine fighting spirit in the sky."Tippy" is a Marine's Marine. He is the type of guy you want in your foxhole, or in the case of air combat "protecting your six". But like all hero's, there is much more to the story than many around them know about. Tippy's story is told through the eulogies that are given at his funeral, which makes them all the more poignant.So, with this posting date being on the Marine Corps birthday and just a day before Veterans Day - take a little flight with this short book and learn what the men of WW II were made of. Thank God that America produced such men who sacrificed so much and expected little in return.While this is a work of fiction, you can tell the author is a Marine himself and knows what he is talking about. As a Marine myself, the flavor of the book brought me right back to my days when I was fortunate enough to wear the uniform. Uva is even able to pull off the strong "Esprit De Corps" that only one who has experienced it can even attempt to explain.I will even admit that some of the stories almost brought a tear to my eye. It just reminded me very much of the bond that only brothers in arms can know. Again, this is a work of fiction, but I feel that it captures the spirit and the essence of the men who had to do the dirty work for our nation to survive.The book is a short read, and I was very fortunate to have been gifted the Audible version of it. It does have some "film elements" in it - but I found it an interesting insight as to how people who are in the entertainment business think about stories. (Michael Uva was in the entertainment industry for over 30 years). I finished it very quickly and wanted more when it was over - which is how anyone in the entertainment business wants it to be. "Always leave them wanting more...."Semper Fi, Michael Uva, and Happy Birthday Devil Dog - you have written a book that brought a smile and fond memories back to this Marine and I am sure any others who read it as well. - See more at: http://moviesandmanuscripts.blogspot.com/#sthash.S0KRJvxT.dpuf See all 12 customer reviews...
