  Description: SOLD OUT - Sorry this book is out of print and no longer available. This is a delightful book written by "Punchy" Powell about the 352nd Fighter Group. The more than 400 wartime photos and sketches included in this book are from the 352nd Photo Archives. After completing a brief period of training, the 352nd was dispatched to a small airfield in Bodney, England as part of the Eighth Air Force. From there they would fly and fight over the Continent and later move onto the Continent to engage the much more battle-experience Luftwaffe. They were flying P-47 Thunderbolts and later P-51 Mustangs, the latter carrying a distinctive blue nose. Legend has it that a German general said, when he first saw the "bluenosed bastards of Bodney" over Berlin, that he knew that the war was lost, giving the 352nd its wartime nickname and a point of pride.
