This book is dedicated to military men and women – past, present, and future.

Their service to our country, unlike some others, is not motivated to achieve personal gain or influence.

Unsolicited book review by editor 8th AF News, June 2010. A publication of the 8th Air Force Historical Society.

This excellent collection spans many segments of the air war during World War II. Packed with well over 160 short stories, this anthology collection is also well illustrated and is an excellent value.
Ralph Welsh was a World War II 8th Air Force pilot and flew B-24s with the 448th Bomb Group at Seething, England. Mr. Welsh has compiled a fantastic collection of veteran accounts making the reader both laugh and cry.
This book is a very entertaining read. It is one of the finest collections of first person veteran accounts this reviewer has ever seen. It is an outstanding work.
This reviewer congradulates Mr. Welsh for the fine effort, but even more so, thanks him for keeping the stories of the 'Mighty Eighth' alive for future generations. Very highly recommended.
