Above The Reich
- American History, Soldier's Stories, World War II
Tales from the cockpit
Beginning in the late 1970s, five WWII airmen sat for private interviews. Decades after the guns fell silent, they recounted in vivid detail their most dangerous missions.
Ed Haydon dueled with the deadliest of German aces. Robert Johnson racked up 27 kills in his P-47 Thunderbolt and had his plane shot to ribbons. Cigar-chomping Curtis LeMay was the Air Corps general who devised the bomber tactics that pummeled Germany's war machine. Robin Olds was one of the most dogged, aggressive fighter pilots in the European theater. And Jimmy Doolittle led the audacious raid to bomb Tokyo.
These heroes are long gone, but now, with this incredible volume, their sensational eyewitness accounts have been collected for the first time in one place.
