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.
The story is well written and you really get to know the people involved.
The combat crew are so alive and likeable, It is hard to believe that they are now old men or have past on.
The stress of Combat and the description of combat at high altitude in freezing conditions is very well described.
I have this book in hardback, but I also got a Kindle version so I could take it with me when I travel. It is a book that you will want to read again.
This book tells the story as it was, the darker and the lighter moments all remembered here.
Read it, you will learn from it.

Direct and straight to the point without using a lot of flowery language (using 10 words were 2 will do) to embellish a situation.Published 6 months ago by M J Davies
