More About Deadly Sky by John C. McManus
 
 
 
Overview
McManus is a master of the art of oral history and one of the outstanding historians of World War II. Donald L. Miller, Author of"Masters of the Air
"
John C. McManus, author of "The Dead and Those About to Die" and "September Hope," reveals the terror and triumph that shared the fiery skies of World War II from the first dogfights over Europe to the last Kamikaze attacks over the Pacific.
This insightful chronicle takes readers inside the experiences of America s fighter pilots and bomber crews, an incredible assortment of men who, in nearly four years of warfare all over the globe, suffered over 120,000 casualties with over 40,000 killed.
Their stories span the earth into every corner of the combat theaters in both Europe and the Pacific. And the aircraft explored are as varied, tough, and legendary as the men who flew them from the indomitable heavy-duty warhorse that was the B-17 Flying Fortress to the sleek, lethal P-51 Mustang fighter.
In "Deadly Sky," master historian John C. McManus goes beyond the familiar tales of aerial heroism, capturing the sights and sounds, the toil and fear, the adrenaline and the pain of the American airmen who faced death with every mission. In this important, thoroughly-researched work, McManus uncovers the true nature of fighting and dying in the skies over World War II."
