A compendium of stories of World War II set in the realistic European theatre of action. How five Congressional medals of honor were earned by a unit of B-24 bombardiers on a raid of oil installations in Ploesti, Rumania, is recounted by William Chamberlain. Bernard Glemser tells an exciting story of commnado raids from English squadrons. Arch Whitehouse depicts the transformation of nondescript Wilbur Doyle into an ace flyer. P. R. Reid's account of the escape of a group of airmen from a German fortress prison is one of the most suspenseful. Special appeal for the male audience.
