Troy White has provided Preview information and
images from a new book on the 352nd Fighter Group - the Bluenose Bastards of
The Luftwaffe called them the
“bluenosed bastards” . . . but you will call them “heroes.”
This is to announce the soon to
be released second book about the 352nd Fighter Group of the ‘Mighty
Eighth’ Air Force.
“Bluenoser Tales,” is an exciting action-filled collection of wartime
stories by and about the pilots and airmen of one of the most highly decorated
fighter groups of World War II.
It was written in the skies over
Europe when this famous group, known to the Luftwaffe as the “Bluenosed Bastards
of Bodney,” destroyed 776 enemy aircraft, 554 in aerial combat, had 29 ‘aces’
including Major George E. Preddy, the top Mustang ace of WWII and leading ace
in Europe when he was KIA by friendly fire, had four ‘aces in a day’ and
destroyed 11 German Me-262 jets. This book is a tribute to their valor and
their skill written in their own words. It is a book that will spend more time
in your hands than on your bookshelf.
An 8 x 10 hardcover edition of 384 pages printed on glossy stock.
More than 80 colorful, exciting war stories.
Eleven action paintings in color by six renowned aviation artists.
