Every soldier who has served his or her country in a war has a story to tell. For Albert Henke, that story is intense, exciting, and revealing. This World War II veteran recalls his journey from a diary he kept and letters he sent to his mother. He felt that the stories should be shared and put into book form as a historical record. The book is based on the 50 missions Henke flew as a tail gunner in the Air Force in the Mediterranean Theater on the European front and North Africa. The book is packed with memorable stories and photos, truly presenting the factual account of courage under fire.
