Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964757710, Paperback)With a crusing altitude of 32,000 feet, the B-29 Superfortress could fly well above the effective altitude of Japanese fighter aircraft. Yet General LeMay ordered them to fly the incendiary raids at altitudes as low as 5,000 feet. What did they stand to gain--and to lose--by this radical approach? How did they rise to the challenge? Find out from one of the pilots who made it happen--a pilot who flew 29 missions and documented every step.
