Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0811733335, Paperback)

Features dozens of never-before-seen photos of the B-29 in action A fast-paced, riveting account that puts the reader in the cockpit of a four-engine bomber over enemy territory Detailed account of combat, mission by mission

The B-29 bomber was made to soar in thin, cold air, dropping its massive bomb load from heights so great that the crews might never see their targets through the clouds below. That was just fine with Ben Robertson, pilot in command of one of the big four engine bombers hammering Japan to its knees in a nonstop bombing campaign in the Pacific. When General LeMay ordered the B-29s to switch tactics from daylight, high-altitude bombing runs to nighttime, low-level runs, Ben's attitude changed. What was once seen as simply dangerous--bombing Japan--now seemed a whole lot more like suicide.
