Amazing. As an Englishman, I’ve always got slightly annoyed when Americans claims to have “won the war”. They didn’t, we all did… however this book really does put things into perspective. I had no idea of the sacrifices the men of the 8th air force made and the hell they must of gone through on those daylight bombing raids. After reading this book it’s impossible to imagine how the war could have been turned without them and their campaign against the nazi’s regime.
The book itself is a wonderful account of what these men went through on a daily basis, not just in the air but back on the ground. This is a must read and it one of the best books I have every read. Huge respect to the men of the 8th Air Force. They are an import part of everyones history and should never be forgotten. In 1000 years time, thanks to this book, their names will live on.
