(With his remarkable gift for bringing alive the actioin 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. The very young men who flew the B-24s over Germany in World War II, did so against terrible odds,and were yet another band of brothers. Here Ambrose describes how the Army Air Forces were recruited, trained, and chosen to undertake a demanding and dangerous job, while making clear the contributions they personally had made to an Allied victory.)
