Re: Doorknob 52 and Fred Arnold / Kohn


I think, for me, it depends on the level of fictional content versus the actual description of events. For this cause, I prefer "Alert in the West", "the Last Battle", and "Heaven Next Stop" in that order. All these books have parts that are true accounts.
I'm afraid Fred Cohn's book (I have two copies, one paperback and one hardback)is more flawed that the other books because he seems to have made up events out of whole cloth.Its a shame, the book could have been much better.
In a recent Air Classics magazine article, another 1st FG veteran took on the book and pretty much demolished it.
