I thought this audio was excellent in content & by the reader. This is info so rich in detail & the human element. Stephen Abrose is a leading historian, for me this was a real bonus. Many may be familiar with the terms B-17, B-24, B-29, with a nodding recognition of WWII lingo. At times I could imagine conditions in the aircraft. Highly recommend.
