Item specifics

This is a great and rare book, Flight of the Liberators: The Story of the Four Hundred and Fifty-Fourth Bombardment Group. The book is a hardcover and has an embossed cover. The cover has wear at the corners but is not torn, there are two pages that have a quarter sized stain and they are facing each other and are in picture # 5. The binding is tight and has 172 pages

This book is chock full of detail on the 454th Heavy Bombardment Group that flew out of San Giovanni airfield near Cerignola, Italy from January 1944 until October 1945. Most of the information in the book was gathered immediately after the war when the memories were fresh. There are separate chapters on every Bombardment Squadron (736-739) which you are unlikely to find in any other B-24 book. It records everything from the formation of the group in 1943 until stand down in 1945. You will also see many pictures you won't find anywhere else including a lot of pictures of the oft changed and inconsistent B-24 rudder tail markings of the group which drive modelers stark raving mad. The book is laid out much like a college yearbook. A must have for any fan of the B-24 or descendent of the 454th.

This book has the name of one of the “Members of the Flight of the Liberators Association” embossed on the front cover. His name is also printed inside the book.

Please review the pictures closely as they are an important part of the description
