The Man Who Flew The Memphis Belle
Memoir of A W.W.II Bomber Pilot

While best know as the pilot of the "Memphis Belle," Col. Robert Morgan's story did not end after his first 25 missions. In "The Man Who Flew the Memphis Belle" Col. Morgan details his life leading up to and including these historic missions, as well as the next 26 missions he flew in the Pacific theater as Aircraft Commander of the "Dauntless Dotty" B-29. Among these accounts include the first bombing of Japan, led by Col. Morgan, since the Doolittle Raid in 1942.

This memoir places the reader in the life of one of the thousands of pilots who fought the air war. At 320 pages, it is well written and keeps the reader turning pages. A MUST READ for any WWII aviation enthusiast.
