About the Book

The untold story of the unique Air Force outfit that operated behind enemy lines in Europe, to deliver every major invasion spearhead, from Normandy to the Rhine River. Almost lost to history, Into The Valley is story of the intrepid pioneers of a new form of combat – warfare in the third dimension. Inventing the vertical flank from scratch on the battlefields of World War II, meant many paid a heavy price. Sacrificing armament to deliver heavier, more potent payloads, aircrews often paid a heavy price. The stories are told first-hand.
