Blood and Fears Summary

Blood and Fears: How America's Bomber Boys and Girls in England Won their War by Kevin Wilson

How America's bomber boys and girls in England won their war, and how their English allies responded to them.

In this comprehensive history, Kevin Wilson allows the young men of the US 8th Air Force based in Britain during the Second World War to tell their stories of blood and heroism in their own words. He also reveals the lives of the Women's Army Corps and Red Cross girls who served in England with them. Drawing on first-hand accounts, Wilson brings to life the ebullient Americans' interactions with their British counterparts, and unveils surprising stories of humanity and heartbreak.

Thanks to America's bomber boys and girls, life in Britain would never be the same again.

In the hands of a master craftsman with a keen eye for human detail the story (Wilson) has to tell is as compelling as it is comprehensive. -- Steve Snelling * EASTERN DAILY PRESS *
