    One thought on “Savage Sky: Life and Death on a Bomber Over Germany in 1944 (Stackpole Military History Series) [Kindle Edition]”

    1. When reviewing a book, I like to compare it against my expectations for that genre: they vary. For a memoir I would expect to learn something about the author who must also have something to say and/or reveal something about the time and place of the memoir. Does it add anything to our knowledge is another question I might ask. Finally, do I give a shit about either the author or the time and place? Sometimes I begin a memoir knowing I'll learn something of the time and place only to discover I' [...]

    2. More Than the Average Combat Narrative ", February 3, 2011World War II's air war over Europe always seemed to conjure thoughts of sheepskin-clad knights battling in modern steel horses chivalrous and clean, to a degree. The reality of events is that the battles being fought in the skies high above the European continent were anything but clean they were just as dangerous, if not more so, as the battles being fought on the front lines. Mainly because the enemy was only one of the multitudinous [...]

    3. Unexpectedly good. This is not a genre that I typically read, but my husband recommended it so I gave it a try. This is one man's real experience that is reminiscent of the movie Twelve O'clock High. This isn't the John Wayne version of the war. The book ends with his war experience, but you can find out more about what he did after the war by looking up the author online.

    4. I love this concept: a non-fiction 1st person narrative that reads like fiction. It makes the events so much more real and personal. I can't believe the author's luck, both good and bad. If this were a novel, it the events almost might seem unbelievable. But the fact that they are real blows my mind.The book is simply written. I wouldn't say its the best writing I've every seen, but in a case like this, I think the content is what's important. I really liked the extensive dialogue. It helped wit [...]

    5. A disjointed and unevenly paced account, which leaves the fates of major characters unresolved. The prose is repetitive and uninspired. Though there is a story worth telling here, the author's treatment of it is rather unsatisfying.

    6. It was very interesting and very real. You could imagine yourself in the bomber and living the life of a crew member. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the bomber crew life during WWII.

    7. "Savage Sky" is a coming of age story which follows the exploits of a nineteen year old American B-17 radio operator and his indoctrination to both war and love. The authors' writing style makes me feel like I am part of the ten-man crew inside a massive bomber - one of hundreds flying in a fixed formation that spreads across the sky for miles. The planned invasion of Europe is only a few months away and each mission takes this group deeper and deeper into the continent to bomb factories, airbas [...]

    8. There are lots of books out there on the 8th Air Force and the strategic bombing of Europe during World War II, and this book definitely belongs in anyone's library who is interested in the subject. The author didn't want to be where he was, and due to a mishap with his paperwork he was essentially forced into being a bomber crewman. He does the best he can and the narrative is easy to read and very enjoyable. He describes life during the time between missions quite nicely, as well as the terror [...]

    9. Interesting memoir of a flight radio operator during World War II. The narrative is quick and to the point, but still relays the emotional roller coaster that Webster was experiencing during his service. The story telling was a bit formulaic, but it didn't seem to lose its pacing or interest--I powered through the last half of the book in two afternoons, so the repetition must not have been an issue for me. Not incredibly interesting or informative, but if you enjoy the subject, then I'd definit [...]

    10. Although the book is written at a young reader level, it deals with a great deal of death and destruction that might not be appropriate for a very young person. Overall, it is an excellent account of the life and death of bomber crews in WWII.

    11. Interesting story, but a bit repetitive (each mission reads exactly the same), and oh God, that ending is horrible and loses a star just for that.

    12. Written by the radio operator of a B-17 Flying Fortress, provides good insight into the daily life of these men in World War II.
