"Charting the remarkable record of the 8th Air Force from its creation in 1942, through its fundamental role in taking the battle to Hitler's Germany when it became the largest air unit ever committed to battle, to its departure from the United Kingdom after victory had been achieved, this comprehensive history explains the formation strategies and aircraft deployed and does so with extensive use of the reminiscences of veterans of 'The Eighth'. Historians are united in acknowledging the vital part played by the 8th Air Force in securing the Allied success and, as the heroic events of the conflict are commemorated half a century later, this book which first coined the admirable, and now universally accepted, prefix 'MIGHTY', returns to print to remain the finest tribute to the airmen who knew their task, undertook it with determination, and successfully completed it." Tiny dint on bottom edge of front board, very small bump at corners, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very light rubbing, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds.
