There are many very excellent books written on the exploits of the USAAF aircrew during the Second World War. Quite rightly the heroics and valor of these men, has been plentifully documented by year, by raid, by Bomb Group and by aircraft type. However the story of the men behind these planes and their crews has received very little attention, even though many were away from home for the entire duration of the conflict. Their story was equally as important to the final victory and this book has been written to go some way to redress that balance. These unique photographs give a close insight to their war.
