    The Airwar in the Forgotten Theater

    Having an Uncle who served in the 310th Bomb Group (his story is on page 35), I had to read this book. The majority of United States Army Airforce History of WWII has to do with Europe, the 8th Airforce and B-17's. However a few author's our getting out of that mold and telling us stories about other planes and units in different theaters of WWII. This is one of those books. The 12th Airforce was assigned to the Mediterranean Theater to support the ground forces of the Allied 15th Army Group which was battling up the 'boot' of Italy fighting the Germans and Italians. The 57th Bomb Wing's Bomb Groups of B-25 Mitchell Medium Bombers were assigned various missions from attacking enemy naval shipping to destroying railroads, bridges and supply depots that supported the Axis forces. This book breaks down the 57th Bomb Wing into its various Groups and tells a brief unit history along with stories from veterans who participated in above mentioned missions. Also there is a great section of color charts showing side views of different versions of the B-25 and examples of the color schemes of the planes in each Bomb Group to include a chart of Tail codes for each Bomb Squadron within a Bomb Group. Also some examples of 'Nose Art' our shown. The individual stories our the best part of the book as these are first hand accounts from those who were there. In some cases I felt I was in the plane with the crew going on the mission. These stories must be collected before they are lost to history. This book has done that and more. If you like this book, look for the upcoming 3 more volumes on B-25 Mitchell Units of World War II. It is a short read and my only complaint is that it did not go into more depth of the subject. However the series in which this book belongs to allows only a brief overview of the subject that can be complied in 96 pages. The reader then can research more in depth material from available sources of WWII History.
