The Black Sheep: The Definitive Account of Marine Fighting Squadron 214 in World War II

With their renowned squadron leader Greg "Pappy" Boyington, Marine Fighting Squadron (VMF) 214 was one of the best-known and most colorful combat units of World War II. The popular television series Baa Baa Black Sheep added to their legend-while obscuring the truly remarkable combat record of the Black Sheep and Boyington.

A retired naval flight officer and former historian for the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation, Bruce Gamble provides a highly readable account that serves to both correct and extend the record of this premier fighting force.
