The old Hawaiian Air Force met the attack of the Japanese on 7 December 1941. Redesignated the Seventh Air Force, its bomber units moved on to combat in the Pacific almost immediately. The Seventh Fighter Command, however, has held back to defend Oahu against air attacks that never came. The pilots of the fighter units frustrated at their static role, said that they were left guarding the pineapples. From the cadre of the original Hawaiian units they spawned two new fighter groups.

The attack on Pearl Harbor was a surprise, preemptive military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service upon the United States (a neutral country at the time) against the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu, Hawaii, just before 08:00, on Sunday morning, December 7, 1941. The attack led to the United States' formal entry into World War II the next day. The Japanese military leadership referred to the attack as the Hawaii Operation and Operation AI, and as Operation Z during its planning.

The old Hawaiian Air Force met the attack of the Japanese on 7 December 1941. Redesignated the Seventh Air Force, its bomber units moved on to combat in the Pacific almost immediately. The Seventh Fighter Command, however, has held back to defend Oahu against air attacks that never came. The pilots of the fighter units frustrated at their static role, said that they were left guarding the pineapples. From the cadre of the original Hawaiian units they spawned two new fighter groups. Eventually, those fighter squadrons, a close-knit fraternity, began to garrison outlying island bases, and eventually saw combat in the Marshals-Gilberts, the Marianas. Finally toward war's end, they were flying long-range missions against Japan from Ie Shima and Iwo Jima. The lieutenants of 1941 were the colonels of 1945, and some survivors served until the Japanese surrender

While Mr. Lambert is a historian and not a member of the 7th Air Force, he seems to have caught the intensity of the moment with his interviews. The chronological detail of the location and missions of individual squadrons and groups does assist as a starting point for future research. The many photographs express the difficult conditions and incredible fortitude of the men in multiple combat situations. This is clearly a work of reference in any WWII library of the Pacific area.

I became associated with the 7th several years ago through my interest in the war in the Pacific and have found this book to the the best resource on the 7th and it's corresponding Groups and Squadrons. A definite must for WWII Pacific Historians. Jack Lambert's research and writing shows great knowledge and sensitivity towards those men and women of the 7th who we owe so much to as Americans.

Was impressed how the Fighter Pilot Attitude has not changed from WWII to today. Aggressiveness and Do-What-It-Takes to accomplish the mission as ordered was our "routine" in Vietnam flying into the heavily defended areas of North Vietnam as it was for the Pineapple Air Force throughout their long "march" north to the Jap homeland. A paragraph on page 67 brought it home that, for a fighter pilot, the biggest fear was not Death or Capture, but failing to do your job that cost the lives of others. Great Read!! A "Keeper"!!

Very colorful book. Sometime hard to understand language of that time. Good information from soldiers that were there during the war.
