Hell Above Earth by Stephen Frater

Hell Above Earth: the Incredible True Story of an American WWII Bomber Commander and the Copilot Ordered to Kill Him by Stephen Frater is an amazing book. It not only tells the tale of Captain Werner Goering, US bomber commander, and Jack Rencher, the B-17 instructor who became his co-pilot with orders to kill Goering if the plane went down over Germany, but also is an incredible history of the air war over Europe in WWII. Vividly drawn are the horrendous conditions that pilots and crews of the B-17's dealt with on a daily basis. In one day, 55 bombers were lost to German fighters, with 750 men gone within 48 hours. An unforgettable World War II history book.
