9780028811291: B-17s over Berlin: Personal Stories from the 95th Bomb Group (World War II Commemorative)

This true story of the European bomber war is told by the combatants themselves and by the sometimes bemused English villagers who came to love "their Yanks". The book focuses on the 95th Bomb Group (H), the first American unit to strike Berlin in a daylight raid and winner of three Presidential Distinguished Unit citations. Its personal stories chronicle furious air combat, fiery crashes, captures, escapes and friendships forged for life. Caught up in a global war, the men of the legendary 95th found the courage to alter the course of history. Ian Hawkins is the author of "Munster: Bloody Skies Over Europe".
