"Mighty by Sacrifice brilliantly captures the sights, sounds, and fury of the bomber war in World War II. From the fast-paced action of pilots outmaneuvering strafing FW 190s to the adrenaline-charged stress of a tail gunner’s position, this ground-breaking book puts the reader into the lethal skies of Central Europe in the summer of 1944."—Patrick O'Donnell, author of We Were One, The Brenner Assignment and They Dared Return.
“This is a great story that deserves to be told. . . . The authors do such a wonderful job of relating the terror and speed of aerial combat.”
—Stephen L. McFarland, coauthor of To Command the Sky: The Battle for Air Superiority over Germany, 1942–1944
“This book is original as it is the only one that I have seen (in over 35 years) that deals with a number of crews on a specific mission, that covers in detail prewar background on the individuals, training, combat, post shoot down, prisoner of war time, and post war experiences. It is also unique in that most of the literature in this genre is on the 8th Air Force, while this one covers the very much overlooked 15th.”—Kenneth P. Werrell, author of Blankets of Fire: U.S. Bombers over Japan during World War II
