Bringing the Thunder

The Missions of a World War II B-29 Pilot in the Pacific


A fast-paced, riveting account that puts the reader in the cockpit of a four-engine bomber over enemy territory. The B-29 bomber was made to soar in thin, cold air, dropping its massive bomb load from heights so great that the crews might never see their targets through the clouds below. That was just fine with Ben Robertson, pilot in command of one of the big four engine bombers hammering Japan to its knees in a nonstop bombing campaign in the Pacific. But when General LeMay ordered the B-29s to switch tactics from daylight, high-altitude bombing runs to nighttime, low-level runs, Ben's attitude changed: what was once seen as simply dangerous – bombing Japan – now seemed a whole lot more like suicide. Features dozens of never-before-seen photos of the B-29 in action.
