Summary
Historian and aviator Jay Stout follows up his spellbinding account of the U.S. 303rd Bomb GroupHells Angelswith the equally remarkable story of the Air Apaches in the Pacific. style="font-style:italic;"> Air Apaches reconstructs the war of the 345th Bomb Group in impressively painstaking detail, capturing what it was like to be one of the young men flying low-level bombing and strafing missions andif the missions werent dangerous enoughfacing such challenges as kamikaze attacks and, if a pilot was shot down, primitive jungle conditions and a sword-brandishing enemy who did not treat downed airmen by the letter of the Geneva Convention. style="font-style:italic;"> Air Apaches is more than the story of one unit in aerial combat in World War II. It is the story of men at war across all of history
