The Man Who Flew the Memphis Belle: Memoir of a WWII Bomber Pilotby Robert Morgan
Synopses & Reviews
"Bring[s] a new perspective to World War II literature...Exciting" — Library Journal.
A powerful chronicle of loyalty, love, and heroism under fire, this is the unforgettable memoir of a member of the Greatest Generation who fought in America's greatest battles-and of the war one man waged both in and out of the skies.
High-spirited young Robert Morgan was transformed from a fast-living, privileged playboy who grew up hobnobbing with the Vanderbilts into a steel-nerved pilot forged in the cauldron of World War II's most dangerous and desperate aerial encounters. This is the triumphant tale of that transformation-and of the plane and crew that never failed to bring him back home.
