It has been 70 years that the engine noise and the noise of bombs have filled the French sky. After conducting extensive research and interviews with veterans and other eyewitnesses in preparation for this publication, Philippe Trombetta has embarked upon a study of American fighter groups who fought in Normand skies. Following volume one, which presented the 404th Fighter Group, here is the second, dedicated to 362nd Fighter Group, based on Headcon Advanced Landing Group in Kent, then A-12 Lignerolle and finally A-27 Rennes. This unit is the most successful in the European theater of operations, with no fewer than six pilots in the Top 10 of the 9th Air Force. Presented are many unpublished photos—portraits of pilots, views of the Group's daily life, in addition to numerous images of aircraft and land vehicles.
