About the Author
Praise For American Bomber Crewman 1941-45…
"Experiences of battle covers a goodly section of the book. Here we hear from pilots, bombardiers, gunners and radio operators as to how they coped with the stresses of missions and in some cases, their capture and imprisonment after their planes have been shot down. All of this is superbly illustrated using period photos and the artwork of Sean O'Brogain."- Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (May 2008)
"Gregory Freemont-Barnes' American Bomber Crewman 1941-45 [covers] the lives and achievements of the American Bomber Crewman of the USAF and the physical and psychological requirements for their duty." -California Bookwatch (May 2008)
"US bomber crews flew a wide variety of aircraft in every theatre. Here is a good account of their experiences, from recruitment and training to combat missions. It contains quite a few quotations from the men themselves as well as contemporary photographs, some in colour... a good book for anyone interested in the bomber war over Europe." -John Prigent, Internet Modeler (April 2008)
