Synopsis

USAAF Fighter Stories A New Selection by Ian McLachlan

Ian McLachlan has spent many years researching a brand new collection of exciting United States Army Air Force fighter stories of the Second World War. He has trawled official archives, interviewed survivors and gained privileged access to personal letters, diaries and photo albums to relate a series of compelling stories of the USAAF's fighter squadrons at war. Each story is self-contained and looks at a particular incident or theme. Among the selection of diverse stories are the following examples: In broad daylight - Dutch resistance operatives spirit a young 4th Fighter Group P-51 pilot away from his captors. Osce Jones - crash-landing just after D-Day, Osce journeys on foot through enemy territory, but will he escape? Frank Klibbe - an eventual 56th Fighter Group ace is fined USD50 for damage to Government property - one P-47 Thunderbolt. Back from the dead - Harry Howard, a 339FG pilot turns up to tell the tale after his memorial service.
