About the Author:

ROBERT MORGANs books include Boone, a biography of Daniel Boone, Gap Creek (an Oprah Book Club pick), and the poetry collection Terroir. The recipient of an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, he lives in Ithaca, New York.

From AudioFile:

The title refers to the famous B-17, named for the pilot/author's girlfriend. Military pilots typically lead daring, dangerous lives, both in and out of the air, so this WWII trilogy of bombs, broads, and booze serves up memories easy to appreciate. Even when the pilot is flying his B-17 through flak, Ron McLarty's gravelly voice remains cool, and wisps of the author's North Carolina accent add realism. However, Col. Morgan's disastrous personal life has as many ups and downs as his airplanes, providing more fuel for reflection than the air battles over Europe and Japan.
