The Liberators from Wendling

by Robert E. Vickers Jr.

Vickers Book 1

This is the World War Two combat story of the 392nd Bombardment Group (Heavy) - its men and machines. The purpose of this documentation will be served if, after over thirty two years, it can provide value as a reference source to all former members from which their memories, and those for fallen comrades, may be rekindled and, perhaps for a quite moment, remembered once again. To this end, this effort is dedicated.

Having just finished reading my copy I can truthfully say that it is one of the most comprehensive histories of a single Group ever published. It only lacks one item of statistical information - how many rivets there were in each aircraft!   --William G. Robertie

"Bombs Away"

by Ralph Welsh
Bombs Away by Ralph Welsh

An excellent collection of first-hand accounts from men (and a few women) who lived thru the 8th Army Air Force aerial bombing of Nazi Germany. I felt like I was having an amazing short visit with a huge group of WWII veterans who risked their lives flying from England or who supported them from the ground or lived near the bases in East Anglia, each one telling me their story.

Some talk about the same raid from different perspectives, so you know those were the really difficult missions. At least one is an interview with a German Operations Officer who gives a perspective on how the air war impacted Germany's production capabilities. This is a fascinating way to learn about WWII. And with each article just 2-5 pages, you can pick it up and put it down if you need to. Sometimes I had to stop because I got so emotional about what they went thru. Several stories authored by 392nd Airmen.

If you were in WWII or had family in the military you need to read this book. It will awaken you to the hardships and dedication that our troops endured and the lucky ones survived. If it hadn't been for the United States and the allies, we would be under Nazi rule. Our troops gave it all to the war. Learn what your Grand-fathers, Grand-mothers, or other family, friends or neighbors did to defeat the Axis's.
