Trained as a pilot with the United States Air Force, Second Lieutenant John Luckadoo was assigned to the 100th Bomb Group stationed in Thorpe Abbotts, England. Between June and October 1943, he flew B-17 Flying Fortresses over France and Germany on bombing runs devised to destroy the Nazi war machine. Drawn from Luckadoo's firsthand accounts, Kevin Maurer shares his extraordinary tale from war to peacetime, uncovering astonishing feats of bravery and presenting a portrait of a young man's coming-of-age during the world's most devastating war.
