Hitch a ride with Captain Bill Behrns in his P-38 Lightning fighter through hair-raising adventures including flying at an altitude of 50 feet over the Southwest desert, patrolling the Northwest coast during the potential Japanese invasion, and dogfights over the jungles of the CBI during WWII. The San Joaquin Siren is the true-life adventure of a determined young man who decided he was going to become a P-38 pilot. With the odds stacked against him from birth, Bill used his grit, drive, and quick mind to make his dream become a reality. Bill's story goes far beyond the tale of a pilot and his place in the history of WWII. The authors lead the reader on a first-hand adventure through the sometimes unorthodox escapades of Bill's flight-training experience through his travels to exotic locations in Southeast Asia with unforgettable descriptions of people and places halfway around the world. Told in an engaging style by authors William Behrns with Kenneth Moore, The San Joaquin Siren is a compelling read for those interested in being fully entertained by travel adventures, WWII history, and the strength of this American's spirit and will.
