YANKS OVER EUROPE: AMERICAN FLYERS IN WORLD WAR II., Klinkowitz, Jerome.

Author Name    Klinkowitz, Jerome.

Title   YANKS OVER EUROPE: AMERICAN FLYERS IN WORLD WAR II.

Publisher    University Press of Kentucky, Lexington, 1996.

Seller ID   24966

148 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0813119618 "At first there were just a few, a scant seven Americans who in 1940 volunteered for the Royal Air Force in time to fly and fight in the Battle of Britain. One of them, a Mi nnesota farm boy named Art Donahue, lived long enough to write about it, and with his 1941 account ('Tally-Ho! Yankee in a Spitfire') began a series of memoirs that now number in the hundreds. (This book) examines more than one hundred narrativ e a c counts of the air war over Europe written since 1941 by American flyers. The experience of combat inspired these men to combine exquisite descriptions with probing thoughtfulness. But the differences in their roles in the war, whether hotsh ot fi gh ters or beleaguered bomber crew members, affects how they tell their stories. (The author) weaves these individual accounts into a tightly drawn, highly readable book while letting the flyers speak in their own words." Tiny stain at bott om o f b oth front endpapers, minor edge wear, book slightly cocked. Very Good+/Fine
