About this title


bomber during World War II, tells the remarkable story of the men of the U.S. Fifteenth Air Force and the air battles that they fought over Europe. Reprint.

From Library Journal:

The product of a major engineering and production effort, the B-24 heavy bomber demanded similar commitment from the crews who manned it during World War II. This memoir tells the story of one such crew and their plane, "Wood's Chopper," from training through combat missions in the war's Italian theater. The author's perspective as the aircraft's navigator provides a different point of view from the usual pilot-oriented memoir, and Currier paints an interesting picture of the lives (and deaths) of heavy-bomber crews operating in one of the lesser-known areas of wartime operations. The title refers to the appearance of the standard-issue army uniform hat after 50 wartime missions, following which crews were rotated home. Operational and combat losses were so heavy, however, that many of the aircraft and men did not survive to make their "50." Recommended for military and aviation collections.-- Stanley Planton, Ohio Univ.
