9780811733885: Savage Sky: Life and Death on a Bomber over Germany in 1944 (Stackpole Military History Series)

  • Gives the reader a firsthand look at war from inside a B-17 bomber in World War II
  • Focuses on the 92nd Bomb Group, 8th Air Force and includes missions to the Schweinfurt ball-bearing plant and Berlin
  • One of the first accounts of being shot down over Sweden

    The Savage Sky is as close as you can get to experiencing aerial combat while still staying firmly planted on the ground. The writing is vivid and intimate, describing the bitter cold at high altitudes, gut-wrenching fear, lethal shrapnel from flak, and German fighters darting through the bomber formation like feeding sharks.
