NIGHTFIGHTER: Radar Intercept Killer

Milton Marion “Black Mack” Magruder, USMC, was one of the first American pilots to learn the art of Airborne Intercept Radar Operations and maintenance. During World War II, Magruder and four other pilots were selected by Maj. Gen. R. J. Mitchell to learn the specialized techniques from England’s Royal Air Force. Pressed for time after the attack on Pearl Harbor, they finished a one-year program in an astonishing three months. This biography follows Magruder through his military career, highlighting his accomplishments as leader of the top-scoring Nightfighter Squadron in the Pacific Theatre.
