THE AMERICAN BOMBER BOYS - THE US 8TH AIR FORCE

Asked why he was in Britain, a US serviceman fighting the war in the skies over Germany with the US 8th Air Force quipped, « We’re here to win the  war for you ». Drawn from all over the Usa, from big cities to one-horse towns, these men suddenly found themselves facing the dreaded flak gunners in the skies over occupied Europe, and contending with British accents and traditions on their time off. « Oversexed, overpaid and over hereé might have been the English complaint, but the growing respect and affection between the Yanks and their Limey hots is a touching note in this wartime story.

Martin Bowman has spent much of the past two decades recording the memories of hundreds of American airmen who came to Britain to fight the Luftwaffe. It is a fascinating history with recollections and reminiscences from the American airmen who flew daily from bases in East Anglia to the heart of Germany.
