Review:
"A re-creation of the first war crimes trial after World War II... a history making trial, setting the tone for Nuremberg. A chilling tale .. [and] a riveting narrative." -Kirkus Reviews

"Freeman has once again crafted a gripping, cinematic narrative – one that raises important questions about justice and morality in a time of industrial annihilation of civilian populations. A timely and riveting story of heroism and horror." -Alex Kershaw, best selling author of The Longest Winter and The Bedford Boys

'With The Last Mission of the Wham Bam Boys, Gregory A. Freeman delivers a thorough, artful, and absolutely riveting account of a fascinating yet tragic story of war, humanity, and justice. Freeman again proves that he ranks among today's finest historical storytellers.' -Alvin Townley, author of Fly Navy and Legacy of Honor

'The Last Mission of the Wham Bam Boys is the gripping and insightful story of the Wham Bam crews first and last combat mission. Meticulously researched and masterfully written, Gregory Freeman expertly weaves the history of the crew with the historic events that followed after they were shot down and captured. This is a fascinating and engrossing book that will be read for many decades.' -Brigadier General Don Harvel, Deputy Commander, Texas Air National Guard

"Gregory A. Freeman's The Last Mission of the Wham Bam Boys is a compelling, thought-provoking, and harrowing account of how a seemingly minor, brutal incident during World War II touched, and devastated, countless lives. It's a well-written, exhaustively researched, and thoroughly human story that shows how war can bring out the worst, and the best, in combatants and noncombatants alike. Haunting." -James Carl Nelson, author of The Remains of Company D: A Story of the Great War

Book Description:
