    1. As a retired Navy Test Pilot I understand aviationGod bless every one of our boys that fought in WW-II. This book is an amazingly precise and readable account of one of WW-II's darkest days of the VIII Air Forces campaign. I urge everyone to read this stirring account of the highest dedication to duty and country

    2. Martin Caidin (R.I.P.) was to military aviation books what Isaac Asimov (R.I.P. again) was to the sci-fi literary genre and what Duncan Long was (still is) to technical books on small arms, i.e. an incredibly proficient author. "Black Thursday," 56 years after its initial publication, remains one of Mr. Caidin's finest and most memorable works. I first read it in 1987 at the tender age of 11 (going on 12), and it hasn't lost its impact after all these years.It reads like both a historical narrat [...]

    3. The classic battle of the 8th air force that marked the turning point of WW2.I found the book a good description of the heroism of the air crews. The author gave adequate credit to the heroic crews but to call the attack a failure was a mistake and to dump on Hap Arnold in the epilogue was an error. The attack erred in the short run because the Allied command was learning a new kind of warfare. Hap had to put on an optimistic front for propaganda. Hap knew the Mustang and drop tanks for P-47s an [...]

    4. I've read and enjoyed previous books by Martin Caidin, but the writing style here is strained, and the book moves along at a very slow and dull pace.

    5. This volume covers the catastrophic B-17 raids on the Schweinfurt, Germany ball bearing factories in World War II. Caiden does a good job of relating the mission itself, during which 60 B-17's were shot down. Some material from an earlier work, Flying Forts, seems to have been re-used here, but fits well.

    6. SuperbHaving read many war history accounts, this story and the manner it is detailed, is the most readable I have read.Superb narrative and presentation of well researched facts in an informative manner. I could put myself in the B17's on this mission.A great read!!

    7. A standard on the Schweinfurt raids.Cover Blurb - The story of the Schweinfurt raid - The "longest day" for the B-17s inWW2". My edition is 1968, have to add it to the edition list sometime. Containsa dozen B&W photos.

    8. Great book. Detail is extraordinaty. Amazing description of action by the USAAF in WWII. A good read but sometimes detail slows down the action. Worth the effort though.

    9. Good readGreat detail on the people who made this mission work. They set a precedence that is still good today by our Air Force.
