Hitler's troops hold the European continent, and the Western Allies are bringing the war to the German homeland with a round-the-clock bombing campaign. Sergeant Jack Novey, an eighteen-year-old volunteer from the streets of Chicago, is hurled into the meatgrinder of the air war over France and Germany. He becomes a waist gunner on the ten-man crew of the 'Black Hawk', one B-17 among the hundreds operating out of English bases. Flying beyond the range of protecting fighters and into the teeth of the Luftwaffe, Jack and his crewmates go on some of the most dangerous and controversial raids of the war. Against heavy odds, they complete their 25 combat missions and live to tell about it." Book is Fine. Dust jacket has soft crease at top of front panel, very minor rubbing.
