Format: Hardcover
Such a great story. My husband was so inspired that when he was in Denver recently from the UK, he went to Bert Stiles old school and was shown around. He's now bought a 2nd copy from Amazon to send to the school as they didn't have a copy in their library. What an amazing man Bert Stiles was.

This is an excellent account of a pilot's story who flew B-17's over Europe during WW2 and rightly considered a classic in aviation literature.

Bert Stiles wrote his book during the war but did not live to see it published. After completing his 35 bombing missions in a B-17, instead of returning to the United States, he transferred to fighters and died in his P-51 over Germany, aged 23 years.

His mother arranged to have his book published after the war in his memory. The book isn't all combat and flying but also reflections on life and war as seen and experienced by a young man, this is a great story and I am glad that I read it.

A well written journal of bert stiles air war. The size of the book an A5 paperback disappointed me but did not distract from what was written.
