From the day he takes his first plane ride at age eight, Alex P. Brewer, Jr., is hooked on flying. With a passion for flight matched by a desire to serve his country, Brewer joins the military during World War II at the age of seventeen. By the time the Korean War erupts a few years later, Brewer is serving as a navigator/bombardier and flying dangerous missions on a near-daily basis while repeatedly cheating death. When the groundbreaking B-58 Hustler is built in 1959, Brewer becomes the first B-52 radar navigator to be selected for air crew duty on the world's first supersonic bomber with a Mach 2 cruise capability. A Navigator's Odyssey traces Brewer's twenty-six-year career in the U.S. Air Corps and Air Force, as he rises in the ranks from a private last class to a lieutenant colonel. It provides a fascinating glimpse into what it's really like to be a crew member on the extraordinary airborne missions that kept the world safe during some of the most turbulent times in our nation's history. A must-read for anyone who has an interest in aviation, history, or the unique stories that define the courageous heroes of the Silent Generation.
