A magnificent volume of short novels and an essential World War II report from one of America?s great twentieth-century writers
On the heels of the enormous success of his masterwork The Grapes of Wrath?and at the height of the American war effort?John Steinbeck, one of the most prolific and influential literary figures of his generation, wrote Bombs Away, a nonfiction account of his experiences with U.S. Army Air Force bomber crews during World War II. Now, for the first time since its original publication in 1942, Penguin Classics presents this exclusive edition of Steinbeck?s introduction to the then-nascent U.S. Army Air Force and its bomber crew?the essential core unit behind American air power that Steinbeck described as ?the greatest team in the world.?
