An autobiography and a book of history, with some humor, is written like a novel - a sort of "you are there" approach.

The book tells of happenings taken from the diary of a B-17 pilot while flying 31 missions over France, Germany and Poland. It is a book that you may want to read twice, as others have.

The book discusses drugs that were issued to keep fliers awake, fighting in temperatures 30-50 degrees below zero, for hours on end, with no heat, and oxygen masks that would freeze up and kill you.

There were battles with fighters, flak, bombs on cables and suicidal German pilots.

Here are individual untold stories of courage, humor and happenings in other branches of the military.

Unbelievable mistakes were made that cost hundreds of military lives, and many other interesting facts and happenings with pictures are portrayed. The book follows the pilot through training, combat and beyond. Although some things and happenings are hard to believe, all are true and documented.
