In “Cobra Combat” Case retells stories of combat and the everyday saga of the men who simply did their job (as Case puts it, he simply ate his oatmeal and didn’t complain about eating his oatmeal).
Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
A decorated officer, Robert E. Case lived a rich life. In his posthumously published autobiography, “Cobra Combat” (published by AuthorHouse), Case reveals the realities of war and how the strong bonds of family, friendships and faith saw him through his toughest challenges.
Born January 28, 1916, in Brooklyn, New York, Case served as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Army Air Forces throughout World War II and, when recalled to active service for the Korean War, served in the missile and maintenance branches of the U.S. Air Force. After a tour in Vietnam, he returned to his beloved Colorado where he was stationed with the Air Force Space Command until he retired in 1967 after 30 years of honorable service.
Case’s distinguished career was celebrated by his colleagues and family members, yet it took some convincing to persuade the decorated veteran to write his memoirs.
“It took us 50 years to get him to write, but we finally got most of the details,” remembers his son, Robert Case, Jr. “After he passed away I made it my mission to find as much of the historical detail as possible.”
In “Cobra Combat”, Case retells stories of combat and the everyday saga of the men who simply did their job (as Case puts it, he simply ate his oatmeal and didn’t complain about eating his oatmeal). The book also provides a glimpse at World War II from the point of view of fighter pilots.
“Every day, they climbed into war weary aircraft that were outdated at the beginning of the war and fought numerically superior, better trained, and better equipped and supplied enemy air forces over hundreds of miles of ocean,” relays Case, Jr., “and they did that up to seven times a day.”
