About this title:

Synopsis: Watson’s Whizzers is the complex story of the meticulously planned and executed disarmament of the Luftwaffe after its defeat in the spring of 1945, and the retrieval and transfer to the United States of Germany’s advanced aeronautical technology and world-class scientists. Technology so superior that it would in short measure change the look of United States air forces. Although General Spaatz in May 1945 had under his command 17,000 planes of all kinds, the largest air armada ever assembled , they were of little future use. The future was about swept wing aircraft flying at supersonic speeds, or close to it: the incomparable Boeing B-47 jet bomber and its successor the eight jet B-52; the North American F-86 fighter and its supersonic successor the F-100 Supersaber were the immediate results of the German technology transfer and secured America’s future in the darkest days of the Cold War.

About the Author: Wolfgang W. E. Samuel, Fairfax Station, Virginia, was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Air Force in 1960. He flew his first operational missions during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, then flew over 100 dangerous reconnaissance missions during the Cold War. He flew combat during the Vietnam War and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross three times and multiple Air Medals. He is the author of "German Boy: A Refugee's Story"; "I Always Wanted to Fly: America's Cold War Airmen"; "The War of Our Childhood: Memories of World War II"; "American Raiders: The Race to Capture the Luftwaffe's Secrets"; and "Coming to Colorado: A Young Immigrant's Journey to Become an American Flyer", all from University Press of Mississippi.
