This review is from: Memories of the Air War in East Anglia (Hardcover)
This book was everything I wanted it to be regarding the U.S.A.A.F. in this area during WWII. Full of nostalgic photo's and anecdotes plus pictures taken recently showing whatever legacy remains from the days of those brave 'yanks' flying those daylight missions.
My father in law was in the RAF and flew Lancasters until being shot down in 1943 and he once said to me that even flying in the dark you felt there was nowhere to hide so as far as the yanks were concerned flying fixed formations in daylight...rather them than me....
This book gives you a good insight into everything about the American flyboys down to their favourite drinking haunts in East Anglia and I should think this must be a 'got to' read for ALL aviation historians, UK or US or anywhere else come to that......
