They called him Whip because that was the way he handled a plane. Small, wiry, always tensed for action, Captain Whip Russel was a terror in the air… and the pilots of his Brigade of B - 25 bombers were the best outfit in the Pacific in 1942. With the Japanese at the height of their power, Whip and his boys flew into Northern Australia on a special assignment that was to change the drift of the war - and teach them all a thing or two about victory... and defeat...
