Masters of the Air
Much of the author’s research was done at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum where this event was held.
Donald Miller talked about his book Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War against Nazi Germany, published by Simon and Schuster. He described the sacrifices of American airmen serving in Europe during WWII, noting that by D-Day in June of 1944, over 10,000 U.S. airmen had been killed during bombing missions. He discussed the effectiveness of the bombing, the techniques used, the extremely harsh conditions inside the bombers, and the decisions regarding bombing targets. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions.
