[nice clean tight copy, no discernible wear; jacket shows mild surface rubbing]. "During the 1930's the Nazi hierarchy became obsessed with sensational reports of the Chicago gangsters, Al Capone and his ilk. So when the Reichsminister of Propaganda wanted to demonize the British and American air forces, he combined the German word Luft (air) with 'gangsters' and thus we were portrayed in the German press. Just as we laughed at the Nazi propaganda tools, Lord Haw Haw and Axis Sally, and enjoyed the music they beamed at us (remember Lili Marlene?) so we reveled in the title of Luftgangster. When America was overtaken by the events of December 7, 1941, two young friends rushed to join the Army Air Corps. This novel is not a memoir; the author's experience is not the story, but it serves to create authentic scenes of the Yanks in Britain, of the Air War over Germany, and the lives of prisoners-of-war and a grand scheme by top Nazis to wangle a separate peace to save their necks."
