            Memoirs of a B-29 Pilot chronicles the author's wartime experiences leading up to and as a B-29 Superfortress Aircraft Commander.. He was engaged in the Air Offensive-Japan from the Marianas Islands in the South Pacific. He looks back at those experiences from the professional vi...ew of a retired airline captain, having flown over 35 years of service with Trans World Airlines. After graduation as a pilot cadet, he became a bomb approach pilot at a bombardier training base for one year. Then, rated as a B-17 Flying Fortress 1st Pilot, he spent six months duty as a B-17 instructor pilot at an airbase training new B-17 crews as replacements for the 8th Air Force in England. Many months of training to be a B-29 Aircraft Commander followed. He arrived at newly constructed Northwest Field, Guam, in early June 1945. 125 factory-new B-29B Superfortresses made up the new 315th Very Heavy Bomb Wing. He and his crew flew 13 missions before the end of the war, all against oil targets. In addition to covering his wartime service, the author concludes the book with several chapters detailing various aspects of the air war against Japan and how he believes attacking Japan's oil refineries and supplies could have ended the war even without the use of the atomic bombs. 183 photographs, documents, drawings and illustrations. A Merriam Press World War 2 Memoir.

            For some 28 years now I have been gathering the personal stories of airmen and women who were trained at or served at the three South Lakeland airfields, RAF Millom, RAF WALNEY and RAF Cark. Some of these stories appear in my previous books; however, this present compilation is c...omprised of new and unpublished material. Having reached the 75th anniversary of VE Day, it is timely surely that the voices of our RAF veterans are heard in their own words. Within these pages you will find accounts of service life which range from the humorous to the tragic, some short and some much more comprehensive but all given first hand. Like our first world war Tommies, their number is marching quietly into history having helped bring about that significant and hard-won victory over Hitlers Nazis in 1945. Listen then as our veterans recount for you bombing raids over occupied territory, being shot down and evading the Germans, ditching in the Irish sea, surviving crashes in the mountains, breaking into the stations' mess bar and drinking the beer but also the horrors of Auschwitz and the death march. Many of these stories will remain with you long after you put down this book, this material was placed in my hands by some of the most courageous, generous and kind-natured people it has ever been my good fortune to meet, and it is timely on this 75th anniversary of the end of WWII that their voices be heard.

            Design work on the Skyraider began at the behest of the US Navy late in WWII. Production began in 1946, and the type made its combat debut in the hands of naval aviators during the Korean War. In the following years, the rugged airframe and powerful engine meant that the type cou...ld be adapted into ever-expanding roles of attack, reconnaissance, weather, and electronic-countermeasure types. Though regarded by many as obsolete, in Vietnam the Skyraider again saw combat, now in the hands of not only US Navy and Marine pilots, but also USAF and Republic of Vietnam airmen. Capable of flying low and slow while armed with a massive array of ordnance, the Skyraider not only took on the role of attack aircraft but was also used as air cover for troops on the ground. Its impressive payload earned it the nickname of the flying dump truck, while its reliance on a massive radial engine in an otherwise jet age caused others to refer to the Skyraider as the Spad, in homage to the WWI fighter.
