From Library Journal: "As a 19-year-old navigator with the Eighth Air Force, Stewart logged combat time in a B-24 Liberator named the Gremlin Manor. He navigated on 31 missions that dumped 8000 pounds of explosives on enemy targets over Europe. Keeping a journal was strictly against regulations, but Stewart secretly wrote about his exploits and those of his crew. His recollections describe in vivid detail everything about the harrowing life of the combat navigator, beginning with the training, and in an appendix he tells how he guided the Gremlin Manor over preplanned routes. He also introduces the reader to the all-important dead-reckoning procedures along with the instruments and devices. What makes Stewart's book unique amidst a flood of World War II memoirs is his detailed descriptions of how he navigated and the equipment he used, which gives his book a you-were-there feel. After seeing Memphis Belle a dozen times, here is the real thing. Recommended for World War II and aviation collections."; 223 pages.
