Book Description HTML

In the World War Two air war over Europe, there have been many published accounts and diaries of pilots and air crews from both sides of the conflict, but very little from the ground crews essential to repairing, maintaining and equipping their deadly machines. My late father\'s war diary offered here describes one small view of their efforts to \"keep \'em flying\".Dad was armament crew chief of C flight, 772nd bomb squadron, 463rd bomb group, 15th Army Air Force flying out of Foggia, Italy in 1944-45, Boeing B-17 heavy bombers, carrying a crew of ten. While not in combat himself, he lost many friends in the conflict and, like many servicemen and women past and present, was forever changed by the experience.Maltese crosses on some pages indicate attacking enemy planes shot down over base.
