Summary:

November 1943 to May1945. The US Army Air Forces waged an unprecedentedly dogged and violentcampaign against Hitler's vital oil production and industrial plants on theThird Reich's southern flank. Flying from southern Italy, far from thelimelight enjoyed by the Eighth Air Force in England, the Fifteenth Air Forceengaged in high-risk missions spanning most of the European continent. Thestory of the Fifteenth Air Force deserves a prideful place in the annals ofAmerican gallantry.
In Forgotten Fifteenth Barrett Tillman brings into focus a seldom-seenmultinational cast of characters, including pilots from Axis nations Romania,Hungary, and Bulgaria and many more remarkable individuals. They were the firstgeneration of fliers-few of them professionals-to conduct a strategic bombingcampaign against a major industrial nation. They suffered steady attrition andoccasionally spectacular losses. In so doing, they contributed to the end ofthe most destructive war in history.
Forgotten Fifteenth is the first-ever detailedaccount of the Fifteenth Air Force in World War II and the brave men thathistory has abandoned. This book is a must-read for military historyenthusiasts, veterans, and current servicemen and their families.
