Wingmen by Ensan Case

O loves Jack Hardigan and Trusteau cut a fiery swath through the skies from Wake Island to Tarawa to Truk there to keep a fateful rendezvous with love and death in the blood clouded waters of the Pacifi. Gerry B s Book Reviews may have noticed I have a passion for WWII vintage stories and have reviewed several in the past I like the era in general It was a time when the free world was drawn together by a war in two theatres and men bonded together as warrior brothers and sometimes Wingmen by Ensan Case a pseudonym Cheyenne Publishing 2012 captures the latter phenomenon with remarkable clarity and credibility It is in fact one of the best war stories I have readEnsign Frederick Trusty Trusteau one of two wingmen assigned to skipper Lieutenant Commander JJ Jack Hardigan Trusteau is a handsome capable aviator who has honed his reputation as a whoremaster because that was and is the gold standard among predominantly male societies It was very often a sham or cover up but it was better than being considered the odd man out Jack Hardigan is a hard drinking hard driving skipper who is dating a wealthy widow in Honolulu but apart from a certain level of affection there is no evidence of sexual activity between them Therefore there is no grand regrets when she breaks off their relationship for someone elseThe relationship between the two men starts as it usually does with earned respect on both sides in this case as pilots of the famed Grumman Hellcats flown off the deck of a carrier The bond grows stronger with each mission warrior brothers until it inevitably ends in a hotel room in Honolulu where the line between brothers in arms and lovers is finally crosssed However if you are looking for a torrid sexually erotic scene between two horny flyboys you gratefully will not find it here This scene is definitely sexy because of the circumstances and the fact that we ve been waiting for it for nearly two thirds of the story but in 1979 you didn t write that sort of thing if you wanted to find a publisher even an avant garde one Nevertheless I think it is made a realistic story because of it This a story about men in love in war and not about sex per seOf course the story wouldn t be complete without an appropriate setting and Case has provided it on board a fictional aircraft carrier the Constitution You can almost smell the sweat and testosterone in these scenes as they jostle aboard her His apparent knowledge of naval aircraft is an asset as well with just enough detail to help the reader understand without bogging the pace down in the processFor those into WWII nostalgia there are also well known battles ie Wake Island Tarawa and Truk Lagoon where most of the Japanese Imperial fleet was wiped out 60 ships and 275 airplanes Case has also provided an insight into the gruesomeness of war in some tense scenes where men are shot down blown apart and drowned mercilessly in the fray and in the end Jack risks his life to save his loverNevertheless I agree with several other reviewers that the story should have ended on a high in 1945 The last part is interesting mind you and wraps up some loose ends but it is anticlimactical

Out of print for 30 years this historical wartime romance a precursor to the gay romance genre is finally coming back via Cheyenne Publishing HEROES IN HELLCATS Jack Hardigan's Hellcat fighter suadron ble. 35 starsFirst thing s first this is NOT a romance so anyone reading this as a romance is going to be very disappointed This is a war story with some romantic elements but those elements make up a very small percentage of page time Really it s a story of a suadron of pilots focusing on three of the men two of whom just happen to be gay and start a relationship with each other but for the most part that relationship is between the lines HOWEVER all that said I still really enjoyed the story I could tell that a lot of research went into this The lingo the fight scenes the war diary the protocols I can t attest to how accurate anything is but it sure sounds legit Though the military lingo was a little too much at times I even had to go back and relisten to the first few chapters because I was losing the thread of the story Once I got used to it though the story flowed well I thought many times while watching that this would make a great war movie perhaps directed by Ron Howard and I would ve liked for the story to keep going after view spoilerFred gets hurt and discharged hide spoiler
