Description

[This historical text is the personal diary of Colonel Samuel R. Harris, detailing his life as a Commander of one of the first B-29 Heavy Bombardment Groups to reach the Marianas Islands in 1944. Focused intensely on his life in the Group and his relationship with the 73rd Bomb Wing's operations, the first section of the book is an intimate portrait of war. In order to provide a contextual portrait of the B-29 war against Japan, the second half of the text details all aspects of how the 73rd Bomb Wing was engaged in the war against Japan. Together, they provide a well-rounded portrait of America--and one American--at war.]
