About this item

Robert Lee Scott was larger than life. A decorated Eagle Scout who barely graduated from high school, the young man from Macon, Georgia, used dogged determination to achieve his dream of becoming a famed fighter pilot.First capturing national attention during World War II, Scott flew missions in China alongside the legendary "Flying Tigers," where his reckless courage and ten confirmed kills made headlines. Upon returning home, Scott's memoir, brashly titled God Is My Co-Pilot, became an instant bestseller and a successful film. As an older man, Scott traveled the entire length of China's Great Wall and helped found Georgia's Museum of Aviation.Yet, Scott's life was not without difficulty. His single-minded pursuit of greatness was offset by debilitating bouts of depression, and his brashness placed him at odds with superior officers, wreaking havoc on his career. What wealth he gained he squandered, and his numerous public affairs destroyed his relationships with his wife and child.Written in deft style backed by meticulous research, Double Ace brings Scott's uniquely American character to life and captures Scott's fascinating exploits alongside his frustrating foibles.
