The most common but least famous plane

This book is ok for aviation historians but is a little dry for a casual read. It is full of interesting facts about the people and where they came from (including George McGovern), the flying of the plane, the training, the missons and the bases in north africa and Italy (none of which I knew about). Narration is a little lumbering but this a good account of a much forgotten section of the US Airforce.

The Wild Blue : The Men and Boys Who Flew the B-24

Interesting although rather simplistic. Many various aspects of the war too partizan bearing in mind other nations contributions to the air war against Nazi Germany. A little or somewhat long winded on the personal backgrounds of the individual crew members.
