The list author says: "I have created a number of Listmania lists for World War Two Fighters but haven't created one for the B-17 Flying Fortress bomber, until now! I have been studying this bomber and have recently purchased a number of books and videos here at Amazon. I will share my research on resources related to this fabulous bomber. My father-in-law was a tailgunner on a B-17 in the 15th Airforce. It was difficult to limit this list to 40 items!"
"This is written by a pilot that flew in the same bomber group and squadron as my father-in-law! This is a unique book - 15th Airforce, for a change (8th Airforce receives the most attention!) and it reads like it is a work of fiction but it is not. It is compelling to read, I could not put it down!"
"A "grippingly authentic autobiographical novel". Sam Halpert served as a navigator on B-17 bombers, flying more than 35 missions. He was 77 years of age when this book debuted in 1997. I have read this book repeatedly. Each time it is captivating-difficult to put down! Strongly recommended reading!"
"The Schweinfurt raid. Another classic title! Essential volume for any aviation library! The definitive account of one of the most momentous B-17 raids! This is a Bantam paperback from 1987 - one that I grew up with!"
"This is an excellent flight simulator that allows you to fly and fight in a B-17 Flying Fortress. It has a campaign game as well as a squadron game. It allows you to plan and plot missions and raids over France and Germany. Highly recommended if you like PC games and want to experience what it was like for the B-17 airmen."
