The Story of WWII Ace Butch Voris and the Creation of the Blue Angels Wilcox. Told for the first time, this is the story of the man who formed the world-famous Blue Angels. Roy "Butch" Voris valiantly fought the Japanese in WWII and was later selected by Admiral Nimitz to lead the Blue Angels, first in prop planes and later in jets as the only man to command them twice. For an unassuming man, his story is stunning, hilarious and inspiring. 352 pages with 16 pages of B&W photographs, 6"x 9¼", hardcover. #0087324
