B-17 Flying Fortress of the MTO by William N. Hess

Book Description

Although the Fifteenth Air Force was dismissed as "minor leaguers" by the Eighth Air Force, strategic bombers from this outfit had done a "major league" job on axis targets in southern Europe following its formation in Italy in 1943. And the heavy bombers employed by the Fifteenth were of course the venerable B-17 and B-24. At its peak strength, the Fifteenth's B-17 force comprised six groups of four squadrons each, all controlled by the 5th Bomb Wing. Having been a part of the Fifteenth Air Force in 1944, author Bill Hess provides an account of "his air force".
