Book review

A rare and astonishing first hand autobiography from the pilot seat of a China-Burma-India Theater Flight Officer, “Over the Hump: A World War II Pilot’s Report” weaves romance, escapades, and humor into an unforgettable story.
Born during airplane’s infancy, R. Roger Johnson saw the wondrous sight of his first airplane when he was a boy of ten. The wonder blossomed into determination during his first plane ride at age sixteen. When WW II broke out, Johnson not only pulled strings, but a little wool over some eyes, in order to become a WW II pilot.
The war brought him together with Army nurse LaRue Tucker, the love of his life, whom he married December 30, 1944. They spent their honeymoon New Year’s Eve night on the floor of the Biltmore Hotel lobby with hundreds of other service personnel. Then they were forced to split up in order to carry on their war duties on either side of the world, where they both nearly lost their lives.
Roger details his bail out over the Himalayan Mountains that severely injured his crew. As the only able man, Roger endured a 20-hour walk out of the primitive Chinese village to get help, surviving a bandit attack along the way.
Read about his experiences with Naga headhunters, the king of Egypt, an unwelcome wakeup call from a poisonous spider, and his shower of beer.
With nearly a hundred photographs, charts, maps, authentic military documents and patches, “Over The Hump, A World War II Pilot’s Report” by R. Roger Johnson is one book you’ll never regret reading.
