    The very young men who flew the B24s over Germany in World War II against terrible odds were an exemplary band of brothers. In "The Wild Blue," Stephen Ambrose recounts their extraordinary brand of heroism, skill, daring, and comradeship. Stephen Ambrose describes how the Army Air Forces recruited, trained, and chose those few who would undertake the most demanding and dangerous jobs in the war. These are the boys -- turned pilots, bombardiers, navigators, and gunners of the B24s -- who suffered over 50 percent casualties. ... Show more

YES!

by April V on Dec 18, 2012

My dad was a tail gunner in WWII and flew 30 missions over occupied territory. This book is the perfect depiction of what it was like for these men and boys who flew the B24s. This is coming from my dad who also read the book.

The Wild Blue

by Andrew V on Dec 2, 2010

AN excellent account of the men and boys who flew B-24s over Europe during WW II. The book is filled with accounts of young boys who were transformed into men as a result of the deadly missions they flew.

Biography?

by Joe X. T on Sep 16, 2010

This book is a semi-biography on George McGovern and has little to do with B-24 war-wide missions. Poor read.

phasedaze

Excellent - with just the right description.

by phasedaze on Sep 25, 2008

My husband, who is not a heavy duty book reader, couldn't put it down. Stephen E. Ambrose is a fabulous author.
