    I have always been an admirer of the late, great Brigadier General Robin Olds. I met him at an airshow once, he had a quiet unassuming demeanour but on talking to him you were left in no doubt that this was one gentleman who knew his business and not one to mess with!

    I have looked for autobigraphies about him but surprisingly have come up empty!

    Anyone know of any?

    I'd love to read that story too. Another great leader who recently passed away, Col. Don Blakeslee, needs his story told too. Both men were obviously highly regarded and extremely interesting.

    I thought that as well.

    Guess I'd better get researching.
