The true story of the men and missions of the 11th Bombardment Group as it fought alone and unheralded in the South Central Pacific in World War II. They flew the longest and most perilous bombing missions of the war, faced determined Japanese fighters without fighter escort, against relentless anti-aircraft fire, and over thousands of miles of water with no alternative landing sites.
About the Author
PHIL SCEARCE is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a 2009 graduate of the Middle Tennessee State University Writer's Loft Program. He is a member of the Tennessee Writer's Alliance. Phil resides in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. COLONEL JESSE E. STAY commanded the 42nd Squadron in the Pacific.
"The elder Scearce's tour of the Pacific begins with a mission on which every bomb misses a Japanese-occupied island entirely. It ends with pinpoint placement of 2,000-pound mines while flying a hundred feet above blazing enemy warships. In between, the detail is high resolution."--"Air & Space Magazine"
