Echoes of England: The 8th Air Force in World War Two
Tempus, 2006 - 286 páginas
American troops began arriving in war-weary Britain in the months immediately after Pearl Harbor and were concentrated around eastern England. The young Americans created a colorful chapter in the lives of the British people, with the bomber and fighter groups making a special impact. This exceptionally researched collection of anecdotes, poems, songs, memories, stories, diary extracts, and cartoons has been drawn together from the airmen themselves and the English people living near the bases who shared their communities with them. Illustrated with contemporary photographs and ephemera, it provides a moving and lasting record of this unique period in history.
