Book Description:
Stephen E. Ambrose is the acknowledged dean of the historians of World War II in Europe. The very young men who flew the B 24s over Germany in World War II against terrible odds were an exceptional band of brothers, and, in The Wild Blue, Ambrose recounts their unique brand of heroism, skill, daring, and comradeship with vivid detail and affection. Ambrose describes how the Army Air Forces recruited, trained, and then chose those few who would undertake the most de manding and dangerous jobs in the war. These are the boys turned pilots, bombardiers, navigators, and gunners of the B 24s who suffered over 50 percent casualties. With his remarkable gift for bringing alive the action and tension of combat, Ambrose carries us along in the crowded, uncomfortable, and dangerous B 24s as their crews fought to the death through thick black smoke and deadly flak to reach their targets and destroy the German war machine. Many went down in flames.
