Lavishly illustrated, this fascinating and entertaining volume transports you back in time to hear firsthand accounts culled from hundreds of diaries, letters, and interviews with veterans. These are the captivating stories of the American airmen and British civilians and service personnel of World War II. In 1942, when the U.S. forces arrived in England, the young Americans were puzzled, amazed, and exasperated by the mysteries of British speech, food, manners--and plumbing, and the British were equally surprised by American ways. From decorated pilots to British civilians who, as children, were entertained on U.S. bases, come stories of comic cultural misunderstanding and terrifying bomber missions over Germany. This unique adventure celebrates the courage and spirit of the U.S. 8th Air Force and the friends they made in Britain.
