Rate this:
Presents the history of the Eighth Air Force in Britain: the individual destinies, the famous and notorious raids like Schweinfurt-Regensburg and Dresden, the social transformation of sleepy East Anglian villages by Yanks, the POW camps in which many of them ended up, and the endless controversy about the ethics of area and terror bombing.

Blackwell North Amer
This is a chronicle of the Bomber War, by turns horrifying and enthralling, of a group of men who faced appalling odds with amazing courage, and who have left their mark on their corner of eastern England for ever. No-one who watches Sally B, the only airworthy Flying Fortress preserved in Britain! booming above the runway at a British airshow, can fail to be moved by it.
