Eighth Air Force: The American Bomber Crews in Britain by Donald L. MillerBrought home the sacrifices made by these brave combatants.
This book is all I could have hoped for in describing the personal wars experienced or endured by American servicemen in England in WW2. The lurid and vivid descriptions recall the conditions these airmen had to get through each and every time they flew, as well as being moved to a foreign country to prosecute the war. As a near neighbour to the 384th Bomb Group at Grafton Underwood it was very special to read about this and other Groups contributions to the war effort.

384th Bombardment Group 8th Air Force
One hundred forty-seven Veterans of the th have already signed and three more Veterans are scheduled to sign in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan in November. The significance of personally signing the bomber and the affection they had for the Bs they flew and serviced was apparent. An idea began to form: might it be possible for the Veterans of the th BG to personally sign a B part to honor their hard work? The dream began to take shape after discussions with fellow Group members, and so the search for a suitable B part began. In March , after a long search, a genuine BG wing skin panel was generously donated to the th Bomb Group, Inc. The identity of the BG that the panel came from is unknown. All that is known, based on the original ID plate affixed to the back, is that it was built during WWII by Briggs Manufacturing Company and its function is a wing stress panel to enclose the fuel tank.
It was placed under the command of Col. Budd J.
