KIRKUS REVIEW

A taut, highly visual and very human documentation of mission #115 in which on October 14, 1943, squadrons of B-17's flew over Schweinfurt, Germany. The raid is described, the preliminary preparation, and the tragic outcome. Careful and consistently exciting, this is a powerful footnote to modern history and should be read with particular enthusiasm by flight enthusiasts.
