Synopsis: Art Unruh, a Staff Sgt. with the Regular Army Air Corps, 15th Air Force, 301st Bombardment Group was a Waist Gunner assigned to help crew the "Flying Fortresses" (B-17s) of the 32nd Bombardment Squadron, stationed in the European Theatre, Foggia Italy. Art was awarded the Silver Star for meritorious service during World War II, particularly for the valor he and his fellow crewmen displayed on Arts 50th (Go Home) Mission when the 301st and other Squadrons were sent, en mass, to locate and destroy Nazi Germany's essential Aircraft Engine Factory located in Weiner Neudorf, Austria. His Diary and mostly complete collection of records and pictures graphically depict what the enlisted men of America felt, saw, overcame, and accomplished during one of the most difficult times the World and our country has ever experienced. For those that lived it this is a compelling reminder. For those that never want to repeat history's mistakes this book is a wake up read into our fathers and grandfathers psyche.
