Peterson flew thirty-two missions in B-17s over Germany with the 379th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force. The stories take the reader through flight training and on into combat, ranging in focus from frustrations with service life to troubles with the brass, all told in barracks language with many humorous incidents included.PrologueLike fishermen, pilots like to tell stories, and like fish stories they often improve with the telling.

However, in the days in which these accounts took place, if a storyteller got carried away and the credibility of his tale became questionable, his audience had an effective way of putting him down. In unison they would interrupt And there I was at thirty thousand feet flying flat on my back and hanging by my jock strap. This then, is my war. The stories that I have tried to put down here for posterity, assuming posterity is interested, are incidents thathappened to me personally or to friends and acquaintances in the old Army Air Corps during World War II.
