Rampage of the Roarin' 20's
The Illustrated History of the 312th Bombardment Group During World War II

From altitudes low enough to look the enemy in the eye, the men of the 312th Bomb Group rampaged their way across the Pacific, driving the Rising Sun back to Japan in a determined fury. Rampage of the Roarin' 20’s meticulously chronicles the exploits of the famed “Roarin' 20's,” the most famous Light Bomb Group in the SWPA, from Australia to Japan in the A-20 Havoc, and later the B-32 Dominator. With about 350 pages of thrilling text and over 700 photographs, this volume of the sensational Eagles Over the Pacific series will stand as the definitive history of the 312th. Five exhaustively researched appendices detail aircraft, personnel and casualties, and a 16-page color section features 35 full-color aircraft profiles and a number of paintings by the top aviation artist Jack Fellows. No military history library is complete without this book.

During May 1945, the 386th Bombardment Squadron converted to of the B-32 Dominator, the only unit to operate this heavy bomber alternative to the B-29 in combat during World War II.
