Black Thursday: The Story of the Schweinfurt Raid by Martin Caidin

The blow-by-blow account of the United States Air Force's massive bombing raid into Nazi Germany's industrial heartland on Thursday, October 14, 1943. On that fateful day two hundred and ninety-one hulking B-17 Flying Fortresses - escorted by squadrons of nimble P-47 Thunderbolts – miraculously fought their way through swarms of enemy aircraft on their way to cripple Nazi Germany's vital ball-bearings plant at Schweinfurt.

The Saga of Pappy Gunn by George Churchill Kenney

His memoir is an action-packed narrative of how a young man from Lawton, Oklahoma went on to amass 28 enemy kills, the first U. S. Army Air Force pilot in the European theater to surpass Eddie Rickenbacker's World War I tally of 26.
