"Winged Victory is, without question, the most comprehensive and most thorough single-volume history of the USAAF in World War II. The range of topics treated and sources mastered is breathtaking. Everything is included: the men, the planes, strategy, tactics, successes, and failures. I have no doubt but that this will be immediately accepted as the standard one-volume account of a stirring and tragic era in the history of air power."--David MacIsaac, author of Strategic Bombing in World War IIAbout the Author:
Geoffrey Perret was educated at Harvard University and the University of California at Berkeley. He was enlisted in the U.S. Army for three years and is the author of the acclaimed books Ulysses S. Grant and Eisenhower. He lives in England with his wife.
