"Not Just Another War Story" transports the reader back in time in one of the most compelling World War II stories in many years. The author masterfully weaves this story through authentic towns and places of conflict that were focal points in the war where we find all the reflections of love, conflict, and hope that wartime brings. It's been six months since the surprise attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor ... Now, it is the Spring of 1942... Steve Carmichael has just graduated from the University of Florida. From the time he was a boy growing up on a Central Florida cattle ranch, he has been flying. His Dad had purchased an old mail-route bi-plane when Steve was 11 and, within a year, the youngster was soaring with the birds in the airplane. As young men go off to fight in the war, Steve places a professional baseball career with the Detroit Tigers on hold...making the decision to join the Army Air Corps-his desire is to pilot the four-engine B-17 Flying Fortress Bomber into battle. He has no idea that ahead he will find strength he didn't know he had and a once in a lifetime chance at love. You can almost hear the roar of B-17 engines when you fly along with Steve and his Crew as they do battle in the dangerous sky above occupied Europe. Each of the exciting bombing missions flown in "Not Just Another War Story" is an authentic 305th Bomb Group raid on the enemy. Experience the action-packed air battles of World War II as the airmen try to survive...only to fly into battle on the next mission with the possibility of being shot down over enemy territory, evading capture and making it safely back to England ... with the help of the Dutch-French Underground.

Book Description Documeant Publishing. Paperback. Condition: New. 326 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.It is the spring of 1942 and as Steve Carmichael celebrates graduating from the University of Florida, it is clear to every young man in America that a war is on. Six months have passed since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and ordinary citizens stand united, ready to fight against the tyranny of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. Steve, who grew up on a cattle ranch in Kissimmee, Florida, had two passions in life: baseball and flying. At the age of 11, his father, Ray, purchased an old mail-route biplane, and within a year, Steve was soaring with the birds. It was an easy decision for Steve to join the Army Air Corps and pursue his desire to pilot the B-17 Flying Fortress. In flight school, Steve meets his future copilot and best friend, Howie Van Dyke. Stationed overseas in Chelveston, England, with the Eighth Air Force, they form the tight-knit crew of Pappys Pack in the 305th Bomb Group. Action-packed air battles ensue as they fight deadly flak and German Luftwaffe in the skies of occupied Europe. Though they must complete a total of 30 missions before earning a trip back to the States, a young British nurse named Maggie captures the attention of Steve, and he finds himself torn by both the uncertainty of love and the business of war. Not Just Another War Story is a glowing tribute to the young airmen of World War II. MacDowell writes a powerful story of the hopes, dreams and loves of the B-17 crew members who risked their lives at 25, 000 feet in the air. This item ships from multiple locations.
