Publisher's Summary

Jay A. Stout breaks new ground in World War II history with this gripping account of one of the war’s most highly decorated American fighter groups. Stout combines the storytelling gifts and careful research for a seasoned historian with the combat experience of a former fighter pilot to tell the remarkable story of the 352nd Fighter Group. This isn’t just the story of a single fighter group; it’s the story of how the United States won the air war over Europe.

This is a fantastic, through, in depth, and personal history of the 352nd fighter group.

I could not be more pleased with book. The story, the thoroughness, the first hand narrative continuously weaved throughout. This is how you blend technical, historical, and personal history. This book is assessable to the less detailed oriented historian who love history and might just be someone who loves planes. That does not mean however, that history geeks won’t get their fill. There is plenty of “real” history in the book. There is no glossing over or abridgment. You get plenty for your credit. I highly recommend it. I thought it was better than “The Men Who Killed the Luftwaffe”.

The narration...

You know the end of the story, but the narration is some of the best I've heard on an Audible book.

Detailed, Complete and Highly Readable

This is as thorough an account of a fighter group's actions during World War II as I have ever encountered. Despite the remarkable detail and insight, it is very "readable" (well-narrated).

An all-inclusive package, it covers everything from personalities (from all sides), strategies, tactics and descriptions of aircraft and equipment. And it doesn't concentrate on just the pilots, but includes accounts from maintenance and support personnel as well. The author, a former fighter pilot, raises questions that others don't think to ask, and does a superb job answering them.

The book also includes many stories and anecdotes that make the men more real and believable.

The narrator's style is smooth and clear, with a well-balanced cadence.

Great "read!"
