804650/47 - CASTLES IN THE AIR: Revised and Updated by the Author: More Than 50 New Photos


By Martin W Bowman (2001)

Recounts the story of the B-17 Flying Fortress crews of the US 8th Air Force - the men and planes that provided the main punch in the daylight strategic bombing offensive against Nazi Germany from 1942 to 1945.  This revealing book recreates in the words of surviving air crew members, the tension and terror of their sorties deep into enemy air space.  There is a wealth of personal narrative and first-hand information.
