While much of this book is about General Ira Eaker's efforts to build the 8th Air Force out of a bomber command that had little more than a six-man staff-""without headquarters, without aircraft, without bombs, guns, or even paper clips""-the story's most fascinating moments concern two large, doom-fraught bombing runs against German ball-bearing plants at Schweinfurt. ball-bearing plants at Schweinfurt. The American general's first problem was overcoming British resistance to daylight bombing when the bombers were sitting ducks for German fighters.

Excellent book, excellent condition, excellent price. What more can I say!

I completely agree with the first two reviewers. This book was fantastic, end to end. From the air combat chapters to the historical, political infighting chapters, this book is totally engrossing. I enjoyed it so much, I bought a second copy for my Dad, who was a radio operator/gunner on a B-17 in the 384th Bomb Group, which features prominently in the book.

It's what it is.

Good book

Must Have! This is a SUPERB account of the development of Daylight Precision Bombing and the strategic bombing campaign against Germany. This book was required reading when I was a cadet at the U.S. Air Force Academy as part of a course on the history of Air Power... almost 40 years ago. It still occupies a prominent place on my bookshelf. I have just about every book written about the 'Eighth, 'Fifteenth, WWII air combat, and the air war in Europe and the Pacific. This book is a real gem!

I served as a major general in the Eighth Air Force (starting in 2010). I can strongly recommend this book to anyone interest in learning about the Eighth Air Force and the importance of the bombing campaign. As the Mighty Eighth celebrates its 75th anniversary, this is a great book to read.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. The first and last chapters are gripping, no-holds-barred descriptions of aerial combat that will make your heart pound. Really. The men who flew those bombing missions over Germany were giants. There are amazing anecdotes, such as the lead bombardier in one run, who caused the entire formation's bombs to be dropped in a residential neighborhood in an occupied country. In between the first and last chapters, Coffey tells the story of Ira Eaker, who started with nothing and built the mighty Eighth Air Force. It's fascinating to see how such a gargantuan task is accomplished, and there are many lessons here on how to get things done in the real world. And there is stupidity, too: it is mind-boggling that a simple thing -- external fuel tanks on the P-51 -- changed the air war so dramatically, but came so late. I have loaned this book to two other people, who share the same opinion, and one of them has loaned it to a friend of his. I hope to get my copy back. Surprise a friend of yours and get them this book!

Mr. Coffey has a very readable writing style and in this book has gone well beyond the story of the August 17, 1943 and October 14, 1943 Schweinfurt raids by the 8th Air Force. What he has done is provide a fascinating history of the establishment of the 8th Bomber Command, the fight for daylight precision bombing over the objections of the British (who preferred night raids, and even the US Navy, which wanted the B17s for the Pacific), and finally the struggles of General Ira Eaker to make it a reality. Interspaced throughout the book are the personnel experiences of the bomber crews, as well as the impressions the English people had of the brash American airmen who flew the B17s and B24s. In addition, when describing the raids in depth, he also incorporates eyewitness accounts of Luftwaffe fighter pilots and German workers in the Schweinfurt factories. All in all, a very satisfying and well-written book.
