Friends,

The purpose of this message is to tell you about my book about American B-17 Flying Fortress bomber crews in World War II, as well as the B-24, P-38, P-47 and P-51 flyers who accompanied them. The book is "MISSION TO BERLIN" and you can get a first edition, signed copy directly from the author -- that's me.

The book is a great gift for an aviation person or a military history buff.

"MISSION TO BERLIN" is a general-interest, Stephen Ambrose-style World War II history that focuses on B-17 Flying Fortress crews throughout the aerial campaign and especially those who attacked Berlin on February 3, 1945, in the largest mission ever flown against a single target. The book also includes a new look at the entire bombing campaign in Europe.

The young men who flew and maintained the B-17 are at the center of the story but "MISSION TO BERLIN" also has lengthy passages about Americans who flew and maintained the B-24 Liberator, P-47 Thunderbolt and P-51 Mustang. "MISSION TO BERLIN" is the same size as my "HELL HAWKS" book of three years ago. The two books look great together.

A member of the 376th Bombardment Group read 'MISSION TO BERLIN" and said, "I learned something new from this." He felt the book described what life was like for these men.

HOW TO GET IT:  For a  first-edition signed copy directly from me, the author, send me a check for $35.00 to cover book, signature, packaging and shipping. And remember that I'll need your ADDRESS. If you'd like to get a signed copy from me, send a message confirming (1) whom to sign the book for, and (2) the address to which to send it. You do not need to wait for your check to reach me in the mail.

First edition copies will be gone in a few weeks. And please tell others about it! If you have questions, please PICK UP THE PHONE.

PLEASE NOTE: I am no longer making appearances at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.

Thanks for your support.

Best wishes.

Bob Dorr
