Circa 500 pages, well illustrated (some in color) , maps, rosters, pictorial wrappers, 8 by 11 inches, very good. Hundreds of accounts and first person narratives plus current information on its members. From the preface: When Echoes began back in 1975 there was no thought given to it lasting for any length of time, but it has! Now, in its 26th year, we are publishing this volume of those first 25 year with two purposes in mind: to preserve all of the copies in a bound volume, and to provide an index to some of those things you may want to read again. From Wikipedia: "the 306th Bombardment Group was the first operational bombardment group in the VIII Bomber Command. It was stationed at RAF Thurleigh, England from 6 September 1942 until 25 December 1945, the longest tenure at one station for any one Eighth Air Force group. Staff Sergeant Maynard H. Smith of the 423d Bomb Squadron was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions that helped save the lives of six of his wounded comrades on 1 May 1943. The 306th was the first Eighth Air Force heavy bombardment group to complete 300 missions over Occupied Europe and Nazi Germany and also was the first USAAF heavy bomb group to attack a strategic target located in Nazi Germany when the group attacked Wilhelmshaven led by Colonel Frank A. Armstrong on 27 January 1943. Colonel Armstrong's experiences with the 97th and 306th groups became the basis of Sy Bartlett and Beirne Lay, Jr.' s novel and film Twelve O'Clock High.".
