You can also use Amazon.com's "Look Inside" search feature for this sort of search. (And both it and Google books show the relevant term to be on p. 139, not 138.)

BillP -- I had assumed that, as part of the editing and review process, TOR would have supplied you with a searchable PDF of the final version of the page images. I'm suprised that this isn't routine (but I'm an engineer, and am often suprised when the world doesn't work the way I think is logical).

p. 130 3rd para, last line:
" . . . and then Buddy Scoles, Denbo, McCauley, and the rest went out in canvas-winged mosquitoes."

Scoles appears multiple times in the book. McCauley appears earlier in the paragraph. This is the only mention of Denbo that I could find by physically reading, or by electronic searching. He doesn't appear in the index.

I'm guessing that a previous version of the ms. included a passage in which Denbo was fully identified, so that subsequent mentions could be simplified to his last name only. But the identifying info was trimmed, and the editing process didn't restore his 1st name here. Is that right?

While I was reading the book, I ran across another short list of last names in which one of listees was similarly otherwise unidentified, but I can't remember or find it now.

Robert Wayne Denbo was also at the NAF when RAH came to work there in 1942, as a test pilot. Eventually he retired as RADM

I've recently updated the errors and omissions listing on my author site, www.whpattersonjr.com, to include everything that has been caught from my proofreading, people writing in (thanks, everyone), and the pass through the galleys for the upcoming trade paper issue. This makes it the fifth revision of the errors and omissions list.
