|Summary, etc.:|| "Four months after Peal Harbor, the 93rd Bombardment Group existed only on paper. It would become the pioneer B-24 Liberator unit in the Eighth Air Force and history's most traveled, most colorful and, arguably, most efficient fighting machine. By Summer 1942, the 93rd had 'killed' at least one German U-boat in the Caribbean. For many months after September 1942, the 93rd made war from England against staggering Luftwaffe fighter and anti-aircraft defenses. Reference to the 93rd was censored; expedience dictated a nickname -- Ted's Travelling Circus ... A half-century later, the 93rd's untold story of uncommon valor, improvisation and raw talent in action comes this gripping saga, stitched mostly from combatant testimony ... This is an anecdotal account compellingly woven into chronological context of the greatest conflict of all time" Jacket.
