Acerca de


Aviation authority Ian McLachlan has researched official archives, interviewed survivors and gained privileged access to personal letters, diaries and photo albums to relate a series of compelling stories of the US Eighth Air Force, based in Great Britain during the Second World War. Each chapter looks at a particular incident or theme, including: 'Jerks Berserks' - newly discovered crew pictures and additional evidence relating to the loss at sea of an American bomber crew. Adrift and helpless, were they murdered by a vengeful German U-boat crew?; 'Skipper an' the Kids' - a B-17 on a whisky run to Scotland vanishes. Decades later, the author helps discover debris from the lost bomber and recreates its final flight; and 'Buchenwald' - a powerful account relating the little-known facts about US airmen incarcerated in Hitler's infamous death camp.

Descripción de la librería

A single man, with some pets and friends and family who enjoys books. I have been a reader since I was young. On a day like today, I would sit under the sprinkler and read and stay cool. After getting a degree that didn't fit the economy, I suffered though 20 years at the post office. The last five brought many customers in who I talked to more than others, they were the book people. And I liked them. I asked questions, and gave myself a ultimatum of 6 months. If I didn't enjoy my postal job, I was going to quit, and I did. The kids were out of the house. The wife had moved away and I enjoyed my animals.For the last 8 years or so I have sold books. I'm always trying to learn. There is so much. But I enjoy the people, and the books, and my animals.

Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. As a postal worker, I know what makes sense for different locations. But you know how soon you need the book. Let me know, or let me take over. I ship APO, FPO, Hawaii and Alaska. I try not to ask for extra unless it is just and extreme out of pocket cost for me. On occasion, I will include an upgrade to priority with insurance at my cost. I do sell on a couple sites, so I work hard to avoid being out of stock, but it can happen. I can find a replacement or offer a refund. It is a most unusual situation.
