Description

Ralph H. Nutter was the lead navigator for Eighth Air Force raids over Germany when he was assigned as Maj. Gen. Curtis ""the Eagle"" LeMay's group navigator. When he was transferred to B-29 Superfortress duty with the Twentieth Air Force in the Pacific, he was picked by Maj. Gen. Haywood ""Possum"" Hansell to be his bomber navigator. Hansell and LeMay were two of our country's leading combat commanders in Europe and the Pacific. They pioneered the concepts of strategic airpower and high-altitude daylight precision bombing. ""With the Possum and the Eagle"" affords a rare insider's perspective on aviation leadership and strategic issues, melded with extraordinary accounts of courage under fire.
