RE: Serenade to the Big Bird by Bert Stiles
. . .Bert Stiles had a remarkable writing style that brought to life the trials and tribulations of the AAF flying combat missions in WWII. Here are some others:
Masters of the Air Donald L. Miller (new offering, is great!)
Half A Wind, Three Engines, and a Prayer Brian D. O'Neill
First of the Many John R. McCrary (Pub. in 1944 awesome!)
Wrong Place, Wrong Time! George C. Kuhl
These are all great!
. . ." The most valuable aspect of studying and collecting AAF memorabilia is the memory of the veterans who wore it."
