Synopsis

The adventurous true stories of a WWII Navigator on a B24 Liberator Bomber flying from England on missions over Germany. The book follows the author's military training through twenty transfers and his inventive efforts to get a commission and join the Air Corps. Each time a decision was made, some of his comrades went one way and others were sent to the infantry! There is barracks humor: tricks they played on each other and on superior officers. In addition to Chapter indexes, there are indexes of his 13 "near death" experiences and of his 18 missions over Germany, listing cities and targets to be destroyed. Interspersed with his story, in bold type, is a report of what was happening in other theaters of the war. Excellent review of little known events and strategies.
