Aviation authority Ian McLachlan has researched official archives, interviewed survivors and gained privileged access to personal letters, diaries and photo albums to relate a series of compelling stories of the US Eighth Air Force, based in Great Britain during the Second World War. Each chapter looks at a particular incident or theme, including: 'Jerks Berserks' - newly discovered crew pictures and additional evidence relating to the loss at sea of an American bomber crew. Adrift and helpless, were they murdered by a vengeful German U-boat crew?; 'Skipper an' the Kids' - a B-17 on a whisky run to Scotland vanishes. Decades later, the author helps discover debris from the lost bomber and recreates its final flight; and 'Buchenwald' - a powerful account relating the little-known facts about US airmen incarcerated in Hitler's infamous death camp.
