Joseph Rutter served with the 312th Bomb Group in the Southwest Pacific and completed sixty-three missions over New Guinea and the Philippines. He is a graduate of Marietta College and after a career in the insurance industry retired to Marietta, Ohio.Review:
“. . . a fascinating tale, well written and one which ought to catch the recently renewed interest in WW II operations. If my reaction to Rutter’s personality is typical of what to expect of other readers, this should prove to be a popular book. This young man gives the impression of being a thoroughly decent human being, a conscientious officer, and a fine professional. I would be glad to have him in my command.”--I. B. Holley, Jr., Duke University (I. B. Holley, Jr., Duke University )
