Book Review – Hell in the Heavens: The Saga of World War II Bomber Pilot

Hell in the Heavens: The Saga of World War II Bomber Pilot
Lt. Col. David E. Tavel with Morton E. Tavel, MD
Brighton Publishing LLC
2013

What it’s about:

The memoir of a World War II bomber pilot in the US Army Air Force, as compiled and supplemented by his nephew.

What I liked about the book:

Compelling story, told in the first person.

What could have been done better:

The background material about World War II air warfare was rather rudimentary and generic.
Poor reproduction of photographs.

Summary:

It’s not a great work of either literature or history, but this book does give a good idea of the drama and the horror experienced by American bomber crews in World War II.

Rating:

3 stars out of a possible 5.
