5.0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFUL TRIBUTE TO THE MEN OF THE MIGHTY U.S. 8TH AIR FORCE AND THE GREATEST GENERATION
By SCOTT CULVER 'SONOFAGUNNER' on January 21, 2016
Great book! So well written. I really enjoyed hearing from the men who flew these missions in their own words. My father flew in B-24 Liberators in WWII. My father, Hank Culver, flew with Jimmy Stewart, the movie actor-turned bomber pilot. They both flew some of the most dangerous missions of the war together in the same squadron - 703rd Bomb Squadron, 445th Bomb Group - with the U.S. 8th Air Force based at Tibenham, England. I used this book as a reference for the writing of my first book, Nine Yanks a and a Jerk, and my forthcoming books, Daylight Raiders and Son of a Gunner. See my website page www.sonofagunnerb24.com for more details. You did a wonderful job Lauren. Your book is a great tribute to these airmen and their ground crews, and the Greatest Generation!
