Dear Friends, my book "One of Thousands: A Navigator in the European Air War" is now available for purchase in softcover and as an e-book. I would be honored if you would consider adding this to your library:
Jules “Julie” Lasner volunteered for
service after the United States entered World War II, and he was trained
as a navigator in a B-17 Flying Fortress.
Lasner flew twenty-seven missions over occupied Europe during the final
phases of a strategic bombing campaign against Germany, dodging the
Luftwaffe’s anti-aircraft defenses in the cold, wintry skies.
Based on interviews with Lasner as well as his wartime correspondence,
this book offers a glimpse into his experiences as a member of the 8th
Along with thousands of others, he pounded the Third Reich around the
clock in a four-engine bomber over the last eight months of the war.
This account offers an insider’s look into the state of the German air
defenses as well as some of the effects of the strategic bomb offensive.
