My personal interest through the years for the men who fought the biggest and bloodiest air war in world history has just gotten more intersting. Mr. Novey's book should be required reading for history sudents. This isn't about the generals or even about the pilots, but by the guy who could have lived next door.
This isn't just about the shooting and action that so many seem to delve on, but the emotional turmoil that goes along with the knowledge that the odds of your going home aren't so good. His family history helps tremendously in giving a more human aspect to the book as well.
Thank you Jack Novey and all those who fought with you, especially the thousands who never made it back home.
