User Review  - Nicolas - Goodreads

I have enjoyed much of Ambrose's writing in past years, but this book really is an embarrassment. When I began reading THE WILD BLUE, I thought that I was reading a history of American bomber pilots ... Read full review

User Review  - Kelly - Goodreads

Nice anecdotal retelling of life of AAF bomber crews. It began to feel like a string of stories about individual missions. I would have liked to have more big picture context for the missions and their impact. Read full review

User Review  - Todd - Goodreads

This is a great history/biography of George McGovern and other pilots typical of those who flew the Liberator during World War II. What surprised me the most was the comparatively high percentage of ... Read full review

User Review  - Ian Divertie - Goodreads

User Review  - Tony Pedley - Goodreads

A curious mixture of a book. Sold as a historical book on the American Air Force during the 2nd world war, but it comes out as a wartime biography of ex-president hopeful George McGovern. The good ... Read full review

User Review  - Carl - Goodreads

As you can see in the other reviews, there's some controversy surrounding this book based primarily on politics and possible plagiarism. At the end of the day, it is a well-written account of what the ... Read full review

THE WILD BLUE has been out for awhile, but I finally got around to reading it. Glad I did. Although I read mainly thrillers (because that's what I write), I enjoy occasional excursions into nonfiction ... Read full review
