Dust jacket chipped, stained and with several small 1" tears. Previous owners name on front end paper attached to front board. From dust jacket: 'This is the first on-the-spot account of the destruction of Mitsubishi by the 504th Bomber Group. Their target was the world's largest aircraft factory; their weapon, the B-29. Never before has the story been told of the men who planned this attack and the crew that carried the bombs on that fateful 20-minute run; of the fantastic cost in time, labor, and human lives of such an operation. Author Don S. Midlam discovered first how that knockout blow was handled. He was the air-sea rescue oficer assigned to the base on Tinian Island in the Marianas. He lived with the men, worked with them, and faced their problems of survival and sudden death. From his experiences he wrote this powerful and realistic story. The Chaplain of the Group narrates it and every event is geared to the supreme moment of the actual bombing.' 313th Bombardment Wing. 504th Bombardment Group (VH). The Mitsubishi aircraft factory 193, near Ise Bay, Nagoya, produced forty percent of all Japanese aircraft engines and twenty-five percent of all aircraft frames. Dust jacket now protected in mylar.
