Atglen, PA, 1st ed., 1995. 343 pp., photo & other plates. D.j., marbled e.p's., 23 x 16cm. FINE. The 308th wide-ranging activities through nearly three years of bitter air warfare are virtually unknown, despite the fact that it performed some of the most accurate bombing of the U.S. Army Air Forces, and used the first American "smart bomb" called the Azon. The 308th also sustained the highest casualty rate in the USAF, as its missions were long and hard. Many were often conducted at very low level and at night through the heart of Japanese-occupied territory and their controlled sea lanes. Fascinating personal narratives are woven into a wider story of the air war in China.
