According to Constantinides, MacCloskey commanded the U.S. Fifteenth Air Force squadron responsible for agent and supply air drops into Italy, southern France, and the Balkans during World War II. The book "is a cross between a unit history and a collection of letters to home." Although the author could have included more on the unit's missions, "air support of intelligence operations has not often been described at this operational level."
