15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By John Burke on January 10, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This book tells the history of the super-secret WW2 unit known by the term "Carpetbaggers". Flying from England, this USAAF unit flew agent drop and also supply missions for the British S.O.E. (Special Operations Executive) and for the United States OSS (Office of Stregic Services) operating in occupied Europe. The author wrote this book to tell the story of the unit that his brother died in, a death reported by the War Department at the time with no details. Even some 40 years after the war, little information was available about this unit. The author shares his search and his discoveries with the readers. This may indeed be the only history of this important air unit.
