Through fine research and writing, Mr. Young reveals the triumphs, tragedies, heroism, and accomplishments of those bomber crewmen and ground crews who fought to protect China, Burma, and India.
Frederick Boucher, AeroScale
The book is full of narratives and feats of individual B-24 crews' stories. There are many period photos of Liberator nose art, crews, and strike photos, to give the reader a flavor of what it was like. The book also contains an index, and--best of all--the 11 pages of color plates and nose art. It will make you want to build some B-24 kits for sure.
Mike Keller, IPMS/USA
Edward Young widens the focus to include the Tenth Air Force's 7th Bomb Group, which carried the war over some of the world's most difficult terrain. Young includes a collection of B-24 color plates with commentary, colorful nose art and in-flight photos. This book is a keeper for those who want to fill in the gaps about strategic operations in an almost fogotten theater.
C.V. Glines, Aviation History (November 2012)
...this survey packs in vintage black and white photos and a lively coverage that surveys the B-24's successes and influence on the outcome of the war, and is a powerful survey for any serious military or aviation collection.
