Reviews

Praise for The Bomber Boys

"Some of the stories read like combat fiction, with dogfights and shot-up planes and skies full of fire, at the end of which the pilot comes in on a wing and a prayer."--New York Daily News

"I have waited sixty plus years to have my World War II exploits accurately recorded. Mr. Ayres' splendid work--based on interviewing combat airmen and many hours of research--has told it well, and gotten it right! I applaud his tenacity."--Peter Seniawsky (Scott), Waist Gunner, 384th B.G.

"Prepare to climb aboard a bomb-laden B-17 bound from England to Berlin...An absorbing, insightful read."--Bill Sloan, author of The Ultimate Battle
