"Chronicles Jimmy Stewart's long journey to become a bomber pilot in combat. Author Starr Smith, the intelligence officer assigned to the movie star, recounts how Stewart's first battles were with the Air Corps high command, who insisted on keeping the naturally talented pilot out of harm's way as an instructor pilot for B-17 Flying Fortresses and B-24 Liberators. By 1944, however, Stewart managed to get assigned to a Liberator squadron that was deploying to England to join the mighty Eigth Air Force. Once in the thick of it, he rose to command his own squadron and flew twenty combat missions, including one to Berlin."--Provided by publisher.
