Ace of Aces: The Dick Bong Story | History Speaks

November 12 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

During World War II, Wisconsin-native Richard Bong flew his P-38 to the top of the list of American Fighter Aces. At the end of the war, no other American pilot had bested Bong’s record of 40 Japanese planes, cementing his legacy as the top pilot from the United States—the Ace of Aces.

The story of Bong’s life and legacy will be presented by Michael O’Connor, an author and retired librarian from the Marathon County Public Library. O’Connor’s book “Ace of Aces: The Dick Bong Story remains the definitive work on the topic.
History Speaks the Marathon County Historical Society’s monthly lecture series, and is presented in cooperation with the Marathon County Public Library.
To attend the lecture in-person, come to the Woodson History Center (410 McIndoe Street in Wausau).
