Synopsis: It's larger and better than ever, substantially revised with almost 200 additional, previously unseen World War Two color photos--more color aviation photos than have ever before appeared in one place! Mostly taken by members of "Mighty" Eighth Air Force, this wonderful selection portrays the American aircraft and their crews deployed to Britain in 1942. The daring, danger, and exhilaration of those days comes across in a uniquely personal perspective, because these fliers took photos of everything around them: their base, buddies, aircraft in action and on the ground, favorite nose art, and airfields and countryside from high above. Altogether, about 600 photos, arranged alphabetically by home base. A must-have for all military, aviation, and photography, enthusiasts.
About the Author: Roger Freeman is the world's leading authority on the wartime role of the US Eighth Air Force in Britain. His previous books on the subject have sold over 200,000 copies worldwide and his expertise is behind any number of film, TV and radio scripts. A retired farmer, he still lives on the farm where, as a boy, he saw the coming of the Americans to new bases all around him; he has never lost his fascination with those times. His best-known book, The Mighty Eighth, was recently voted their favourite aviation book of all time by the readers of FlyPast magazine.
