Synopsis: Many of Aviation History Magazine's readers enjoyed Richard Bender's article in the May 2002 issue, "Victor Tatelman: B-25 Pilot in the Pacific." Now they can read an account of Bender's life as a Boeing B-17 pilot in World War II. He was shot down over Belgium in early 1944, shortly before his upgrade from co-pilot status to pilot was expected to take place, but not before he got more experience than he had bargained for in the flak-filled skies over Europe. Bender's personal narrative keeps the reader's interest by including suspense-filled accounts of his several narrow escapes and his bailout over enemy territory and incarceration. He describes living in a German POW camp as an endurance contest, with all the toil and hardship that entails. He also shares the relief he felt when he was liberated by Allied troops, led into the camp by none other than General George S. Patton. Maximum Effort provides a fascinating, you-are-there account of what it was like to sit in the best seat in the house aboard a great airplane, in which even the milk runs held their share of danger.
