It really hits you: these are kids out of high school, engaged in an international conflict of epic proportions, using the latest technology (unproven), and half of them died. OSHA would not approve! But they did it - they manned up and did the job. This book really puts the reader there, through lots of stories both on the ground and in the air. It's just the kind of WWII book I love: stories from the men and women engaged in the conflict. I told my 12 year old to listen to it and he couldn't put it down! He also wondered what Spam was, so we bought a can! Mr. DeMunn is perfect for reading this book.
great book. wonderful way to learn more about an aspect of WWII that would otherwise be just touched on in other books. Even thogh McGovern was the most talked about as the pilot one learned about other
I enjoyed the story, always like Ambrose's books. Would have liked more detail. Would recommend, good story of GI life in Italy.
Was a good listen, good reader. Learned quite a lot about the B-24. My dad flew in a B-17 from England so this was about the other "heavy bomber" he talked about.
Enjoyed the story as I am a history buff of WWII. Unbelievable what these men went through.
My Uncle Mike died in a B-24, this story helped me realize just what he must have went through. Very good story and it should have been told a lot sooner.
