Soldiers with Spanners PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Soldiers with Spanners free pdf Soldiers with Spanners is unique in that it tells the story of the men in the USAAF's 2nd Air Division during WWII, and better still, it shows it in pictures. To ass poignancy and accuracy, the majority of pictures were taken by the young men themselves. A few are taken by the Station Photographic Sections, but even then, they represent the part of the war seen through the eyes of a young man in a war zone, in a foreign country, away from their families for the first time. These historic pictures capture what went on behind the fence s of the many plots of 'Little America' that sprang up over East Anglia during the early 1940s. To the English who lived in the vicinity, they were almost foreign lands, but now we are able to pass those security gates to seethe pictures of the men, and a few of the girls at work, rest and play. There were good days and bad days, long days and short days - all captured in theis book as a lasting memento of what those G.Is went through.
