    1. First published in the late 80s, Mr Hawkins has assembled first person stories from members of the 95th BG H of World War II The stories are not just the memories of Air Crew, but run the whole gamut of the people who made up the 95th mechanics, intel people, cooks, medical staff, etc Some of the stories even come from British people working around their base in East Anglia.For the most part the stories are arranged in chronological order starting with the Groups activation and training in the U [...]

    3. This book is not for everyone I thought it was great because of how many personal stories it captured It gave those who did not want to write an entire book, or couldn t or didn t want to remember a lot of things, an opportunity to share some of their experiences If you enjoy personal stories of World War II and want some up front and up close stories, some of them quite unique, this would be a good read.

    4. Collection of short first person accounts Does not read like a novel or have an overarching history context Read in memory of Hubert O Minick, my father in law, who flew with the 95th bomb group 412 squadron from October 1944 to April 1945 Rest in peace second dad.
