8th Air Force: Masters of the Air
I have just returned from the Dr. Donald Miller's
superb presentation on the 8th Air Force at the Army Heritage and Education Center this evening.
A wonderful story teller, Dr. Miller described the often harrowing experiences of the air crews that flew from England from 1942 to 1945, which lost more men killed than the USMC in the war.Enduring extreme cold, frostbite,
Flak and masses of enemy fighters, the young men of the 8th Air Force helped ensure victory for the allies against Nazi Germany.
I am very much looking forward to reading his book, "Masters of the Air: America's Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany,"
which arrived yesterday from Amazon, in time
for me to have it autographed tonight.
