I first encountered the author of this book, Thomas Childers, as a customer of the Teaching Company. Mr. Childers is the instructor of a couple of excellent courses about WWII for that company. Childers' courses on Hitler's Empire and the History of WWII led me to discover what a wonderful historical fiction writer he is as well. The book I review here, "Wings of Morning," is not technically a work of fiction. Although most of the dialog between characters is fictional, the historical accuracy of the story of a WWII Eighth Air Force B24 bomber crew is maintained through its basis upon the letters of this crew to their families during the war. Further historical accuracy is provided by military records and personal accounts of events. This story of the experiences of real people who became bomber crew members during the air war over Germany is a compelling read by itself. The personal detective work performed by the author at the end of the book to determine the details of the fate of this crew's final mission, however, makes this story truly unforgettable. If you want to get a personal feel for what it was like to live as a member of a WWII bomber crew, this book takes you into the hearts and minds of those who lived the experience.
