I've never known of another book's title and subtitle that described its protagonist so well. Tempered Steel: The Three Wars of Triple Air Force Cross Winner Jim Kasler chronicles the heroic life of this Air Force colonel, a jet-fighter ace during the Korean War and the only Airman in history to receive three Air Force Crosses. This biography is a gripping account of a man whose unparalleled commitment to "service before self' is something we should all emulate.
