Never before has the complete experience of an American Fighter Group flying from airfields in East Anglia during WWII been covered in the depth and detail of Jonah's Feet are Dry. The scope of this work is unique in aviation historical study and will appeal to veterans and families, as well as academic, general and enthusiast reader.

Read the history, from formation to disbandment, of one of the Mighty Eighth Air Forces great Fighter Groups. This history covers the fierce battles of Schweinfurt and Regensburg, the successes of Big Week and D-day, the tragedy of the Arnhem operations, the Battle of the Bulge to the final collapse of Nazi Germany.

Using previously undiscovered sources, countless first hand accounts and official archives, the work comprehensively covers the 353rd's bomber escort duties, dive-bombing and ground strafing operations including the innovative work of 'Bill's Buzz Boys'. It also pays particular attention to the remarkable careers of Colonel Glenn E Duncan and Major Walter C Beckham who were to play such a vital role in the battle for the skies over Europe.

Personalities, politics, characters and motivation at every level are detailed together with a full picture of day to day operations both in the air and on the ground.
