Editorial Reviews

Review

“,,,enables the reader better to understand how and why things were the way they were in the skies of Europe in the Second World War. Very readable, surprisingly revealing.”
Aviation News

“…an interesting and challenging read and a valuable contribution to air war literature.”
Fighting High

"...delivers a real punch... a fine, straight forward, informative look at the air war over Europe after June 6 1944, with a surprising amount of new perspective on the moral issues of area bombing with implications in the present century. A worthy book about yesterday for today and tomorrow."
Midwest Book Review

“The combination of personal memoirs dotted in between the facts about the 100th’s missions, plus the evident research skills of the author providing an intelligent analysis of a great many usual aspects of the events surrounding the 8th Air Force in Europe, creates a startling combination of the poignant and the historic.”
Military Modelling

“…an elaborate study….well worth adding to any collection.”
Military Modelling

“…an educated critique of the US bomber offensive during the Second World War…. An interesting read well worth taking up…”
Scale Aviation Modeller International

"... an exceptional work on the Allied bombing campaign during World War II. While drawing on his uncle’s diary for close-in combat experiences, he also provides a scientist’s eye for the true chokepoints of German industry, particularly its synthetic fuel industry. Full of facts, anecdotes and strategic perspective, while following the progress of America’s “Bloody 100th” Bomb Group, Sion has provided a fascinating look at the massive WWII air war--a unique campaign in modern history."
Stephen Tanner, author of “Afghanistan: A Military History” and “Refuge from the Reich: American Airmen and Switzerland During World War II”

"very readable account…intertwines the deeply personal and day to day minutiae of life on a Mighty 8th bomber base with the pros and cons of daylight missions and US offensive strategy. A chilling read…"
