Written by Captain John McCrary and David E. Scherman in 1944. Captain John R. (Tex) McCrary who joined the Army Air Force in 1941 and served initially as a Public Relations Officer and then as a Photographic Officer with the Eight Army Air Force. David Scherman was a Life Magazine photographer since 1938 and assigned to England during the War years shot the majority of pictures included. Many of the stories taken directtly from the crew members. Great reading that puts the reader in England during the War with different elements of the Eight Air Force. The book has over 240 pages of which more than 110 are black and white pictures of war scenes depicting the men, planes, and life of the US Airmen of the Eight Air Force. As someone that lost a relative with the Eight Air Force while fighting over Europe it provides the reader with a window in time of life for the servicemen during the Air War.
