5.0 out of 5 stars Mash Angels Review Sept. 26 2010
By JW - Published on
Mr. Kirkland's writing skills have sharpened over the course of producing 3 books.
His writing projects warmth and candidness onto a bleak historical framework.
He reminds us that the Air Force was a vital participant in those life-saving missions and in early helicopter history.
Mash Angels is a valuable addition to Korean War history and a pleasure to read.

MASH ANGELS: TALES OF AN AIR-EVAC HELICOPTER PILOT IN THE KOREAN WAR provides a fine account perfect for any library strong in Korean war history and events. If provides a personal account of danger and heroism from one of the pilots who pioneered the use of helicopters for battlefield medical evacuation, telling of his front-line experience rescue flying and military medicine challenges. A 'must' for any military library strong in Korean War accounts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real MASH pilots Dec 21 2009
By Palle J. Christensen - Published on
Richard C. Kirkland was a 100 % fighterpilot from WWII, but found himself in Korea in helicopters - an unbelievable waste of talent as he saw it! His former buddies tangled with MiG's overhead, while he got to grips with the "grunts'" lives. Helicopter-lifting the wounded to nearby MASH hospitals, in a life or death struggle. We get to know the real "Hawkeye" surgeon from the 8055 MASH. A larger than life character apparantly, as portrayed in the movie and TV-series. Personal problems, showing on "R&R" in Japan f.ex., is honestly reported. The pioneering efforts of casualty recovery is nailbiting. As when the author gets conned into a night recovery. (The Sikorsky H-5 had no instrument lighting or landing light!). Highly recommended!

Hair raising in parts. What those pilots did for their country. they are unsung heroes!! The story flowed well and was almost sorry it ended . Not for the feint of heart but a good read. Leaned some history of that conflict which was truly a war, that I did not know. Many people do not know this story or much about the Korean Conflict. Carolyn M
4.0 out of 5 stars Korean War helicopter pilot and his memoirs April 6 2014

This is a very good read. I don't know if he wrote his own book or had it ghostwritten, but he tells a pretty good story. The guy has truly been there. It's like watching M.A.S.H. but you know that none of it was made up (in fact the real Hawkeye is prominent in this book, and Kirkland says the TV version wasn't that far from the truth). A must-read for war buffs.
