AuthorHouse, Sep 27, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 328 pages
Casey Hasey takes you onboard as you live the life of flying in a B-26 Bomber through death defying missions where on some days many did not return. Experience the thrill of D-Day, the Little Blitz, the war through occupied France and into Hitlers Germany. Both on the ground with the locals finding ways to survive and in the air, Casey makes you feel like you are right there beside him. This book should be a movie, it has everything.
