This book, more than any other I've read, makes very real the awesome danger the B-17 crews faced, flying into clouds of flak, defending themselves against fighter attacks, nursing damaged aircraft out of enemy territory, watching other aircraft crewed by their mates go down in flames, knowing that could have been them. Flying B-52's over Vietnam, we got a certificate every 100 missions. 8th AF B-17 crews weren't expected to survive 25 missions! I am in awe of the bravery of airmen he flew with!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
