This book is a history of my flying experiences in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. The instructional phase of my flying career began in August 1943, and I received my pilot's Wings in February 1944. I then became a copilot on a B-17, and had operational trining with a crew in Florida. My crew was sent to England to fly with the Eighth Air Force. We were based with the 388th Bomb Group at Knettishall in East Anglia. From this base flew 26 missions into Germany. The last section tells something of my hospitalization after I was wounded on my last mission.

I was born in 1922 at Steubenville, Ohio. During my early years, I lived in both Steubenville, and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I attended Kenyon College in Ohio before World War II, and was called into the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1943. After the war, I studied at Columbia University in New York City and The University of Chicago, from which institution I received a PhD in Economics. I then taught economics at three universities. I retired from the University of Georgia in 1990. I am married to the former Hildegard Weber of Essen, Germany and we have five children.
