I absolutely love this book but I am also a big WWII History and Aviation buff. This book contains first hand accounts and actually puts names, faces and missions to the war in the Pacific. It shows what the pilots and base crew did in their spare time, how they prepared for missions and how they really felf about the missions at hand. It also catches up with them all these years later to find out what they did after the war and what they are up to now. A great read!
