Overview

In vivid detail, and with honest realism, author Ben Parnell tells the absorbing story that is one of the greatest secrets to come out of World War II-the saga of the special operations missions of the Carpetbaggers in Europe. It is an absorbing account of brave airmen who flew their missions at altitudes of two hundred feet-and less-at night to provide the supplies and support needed by resistance groups throughout German-occupied Europe. The narrative thrusts the reader in the cockpit of the aircraft as night after night regardless of weather conditions, supplies, arms and special agents are dropped behind the lines to assist the guerilla bands in creating chaos and uncertainty for the German conquerors.
