An excellent memoir that shares the difficulties of what life was like during the Great Depression and the affect that it had on millions of adolescents in the United States during the 1930's. Sgt. Hutchinson then describes the traumatic experiences for these young men in the air war in Europe and the R and R in London, England. This book is a must read for the young people of today to gain an appreciation for the accomplishments of the "Greatest Generation."

What a great way to educate yourself on the daily life of a WWII veteran. This is a very interesting book! I was riveted with the terrific details and stories. It is amazing that our grandfathers and fathers did such amazing things at such a young age. We truly owe them our respect and admiration. After reading this book, it is easy to see why this generation is called "The Greatest Generation".

What a great book! As an aviation fanatic, it was interesting to read about the technical aspects of the "Flying Fortress" from a first hand point of view. The physical rigors of fighting the Germans at 25,000 feet in 40 below conditions and on oxygen for many hours lets one know the sacrifices the air crews made. I also enjoyed reading about what it was like to grow up in the depression. The discipline the young people learned at an early age shows why they are indeed the "Greatest Generation"

"This is the best personal account of the Depression and WWII I've ever read. The author's first-person account of the impact of the Depression, and his stories of WWII compiled through his diary written as he served as a radio-operator on a B-17 will make you laugh and cry. The author writes with candor and humor as he remembers his childhood, and takes you on an adventure through WWII as seen through the eyes of a combat warrior barely out of his teens. You won't want to put this one down!"
