9780615336053: For This Marvelous Country: Counting on me to get them back home

For This Marvelous Country is the true life story of a B-17 combat pilot in the Eighth Air Force, 92nd Bombardment Group in the European Operational Theater of WWII. Bill struggles through twenty-five combat missions, including the epic air battle, Schweinfurt. Then, after a stint in the States, he volunteers for a second tour, anxious for combat and eager for the responsibility of a crew. Bill and Marg's wartime correspondence began in 1943 at her mother's persistence. Their letters were "friendly, but not familiar"; a reflection of Bill's military training.

About the Author:

Carol Rose Offutt is married, the mother of two adult children, a former college instructor and a member of the 92nd USAAF-USAF Memorial Association. A few years ago she spoke with several men she found crying as they knelt by a B-17 Flying Fortress on display. She then took a tour of that refurbished relic of a plane. With that personal experience, she realized why her father woke in sweat from frantic nightmares and why her mother was so smitten with her flyboy, Bill.

Book Description Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 121 pages. For This Marvelous Country is the inspiring true life story of a B-17 combat pilot in the 8th Air Force, 92nd Bomb Group in Europe during WWII. Bill, Capt. William B. Rose, recounts his first twenty-five combat missions, including the epic air raids on Schweinfurt and Brunswick. In 1943 Marg wrote a letter to Bill, the pilot of her brothers crew. The letters they shared were friendly, but not familiar; a reflection of Bills military training. Bill returns to Europe in 1944 for a second combat tour in the B-17. At the end of the war, in 1945, Bill and Marg, two strangers that had shared the cares and concerns of wartime through correspondence, found themselves in a quandary - where do we go from hereFor This Marvelous Country is a story for all veterans as testament to their fine service, for everyone that prayed for the safe return of sons, brothers, friends and lovers, and for future generations who seek to discover the patriotic fervor exemplified by the WWII generation. Bill is inspirational in his courage, his love of country and his love of life. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
