Journalist James Hammond takes us along on his father¿s true life journey from a simple home in rural South Carolina to the co-pilot seat of an American flying fortress bomber that braved the perilous skies over Nazi Germany in World War II. Based on a remarkable collection of research materials, including original flight logs and interviews with his dad¿s old crew, Hammond¿s vivid chronological tale relates the dangers, comraderie, horrors and heroism experienced by members of the B-17 bomb groups that relentlessly pummeled Hitler¿s intractable war machine. The indifferent brutality of shattering metal flak is balanced by excerpts from a series of tender war-time letters between the young aviator based in England and the woman back home who would later become his wife. This is not just a piece of history, but a piece of our nation¿s heart.
