User Review  - John - Goodreads

I first listened to this book on a cross-country trip years ago. The audio, and the isolation of a solo trip, gave it particular emotional value as a story. When Sen. McGovern died a few weeks ago ... Read full review

Ambrose's book is kind of two stories. The story of the flight crews that flew B-24's from Italy into Germany, a group that has had less publicity than the 8th air force (with Jimmy Stewart and Clarke ... Read full review

User Review  - Brooks - Goodreads

Interesting set of stories on the airmen flying the B-24. Focus is on George McGovern and his crew, but pulls stories from many veterans of the Army Air Corp and Navy fliers. To be honest, there really is no narrative, just a jumble of stories. Read full review
