About this title


Fully annotated, republished 8th USAAF aviation history book. Fully covering the research from 1991 to 1998 of the author to determine the true crash site of the Dual Congressional B-17, the "Lady Jeannette." Using hundred of interviews, crash site visits, National Archives and USAF Historical Research Agency, the author proved the B-17 crashed at Tincourt-Boucly, Department of the Somme, France. Then after being published as a hard bound book in 1998, the author was gifted two identificable relics of the bomber that crashed that site. It took the author three months to prove, that it was not a B-17 that crashed at that site, as the two Congressional Medal Of Honor Citations indicate, along with all other US official documents, it was actually a Top Secret B-24 of the 38th Bombardment Squadron (RCM - Radar Counter Measures), that was shot down by the 'Friendly Fire' of an American P-61 night fighter. While the B-24 was flying a Top Secret night mission with the RAF, while electronically jamming German Radars and radios. The equipment aboard the Top Secret B-24 was considered so secret, that verbal orders from the highest commander, ordered that its crash in France be covered-up by moving the official crash site of the B-17, that had crashed 14.5 hours and 138 miles away, to the B-24 crash site. In early December, 1944, two Congressional Medal Of Honor applications were submitted for the two pilots of the B-17, using the description of the crash of the Top Secret B-24 and the death of three of its crew. Instead of the true circumstances and death of four crewmen above the B-24. The book is fully annotated, with each annotation showing what the author found, as he first had to prove his book 50% wrong, when in fact, it was 99.9 % correct. Except, the French and Americans interviewed at and near the Tincourt-Boucly crash site, interacting with the surviving crew of the Top Secret B-24. However, what happened in the air with the B-17 before its crash happened exactly as written. This is now, the first book in a trilogy of three. This book details the first seven years of the author's research. The second book, "The Best Kept Secret Of World War Two!" is a direct, day by day, month by month and year by year description of the events, as discovered during his eighteen, plus, years of research into the two aircraft crashes. The third book, Researching "The Best Kept Secret Of World War Two!" will contain, in the same format as this book, the additional years of research after this book was first published. And, as this book does, it will lay out the research, in the envolving discovery, leading to the true identification of both the Top Secret B-24 crash site and the B-17's crash site.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
