This is a book about perseverance, vision, drive and all the things needed to get "the plane that won the war."
On another note, the B-29 was an awesome game changer. American ingenuity that, in a few short years. developed an arsenal of the best ground, air and sea machines of war to overpower the evils in Europe and Asia. Way too many soldiers gave the supreme sacrifice to win this war but credit also needs to be given to the civilians back here at home that designed and built the weapons that won the war. God Bless America!
He was home in August 1945, but facing recall for operations for an impending invasion of Japan. But the B-29 and the atomic bomb changed the course of history and possibly saved his life, making my birth in 1950 possible.
Thank God for Boeing and the B-29!
War is ugly and the deaths ghastly. But it seems clear many more on all sides would have been sacrificed were an invasion been needed to pacify Japan.
This book was an interesting look at a troubled aircraft that finally grew into itself and brought WWII to an end.
