Signed by author without inscription on first title page. Unread. BGen Richard M. Baughn USAF (ret), who flew P-51's with the 8th AF during WWII, has written a carefully researched historical novel that provides the reader with a graphic view of how the young USAAF airmen lived, fought and died. He also weaves relevant Anglo/American politics and prewar interservice turf battles into the story and includes testimony by the German military and high ranking civilians to counter the detractors of the USAAF's contribution to the war against Germany. Although the D-Day invasion of France is the centerpiece of the battle to end the Nazi occupation of Europe, the author reminds the reader that 60,000 British/American airmen were shot down or killed before D-Day. His research also reveals that 41,802 of the 100,000 pilots, navigators, bombardiers and aerial gunners in Europe were killed in the fiercest aerial combat the world has seen. The US Navy, 3.3 million strong, lost 36,950 during WWII and 19,733 Marines were killed from a total force of 475,604.
