One Man’s Courage During The Bloodiest Military Campaign in Aviation History
The incredible true story of John “Lucky” Luckadoo, who survived 25 missions as a B-17 Flying Fortress pilot in WWII.
John “Lucky” Luckadoo truly was damn lucky. He and his best friend enlisted together. With John having a college degree, he was put into a bomber.
This guy flew 25 missions in combat. This was a pretty amazing stat considering what the odds were of him coming home alive.
The story is written from his firsthand accounts by Maurer. The actions scenes were incredible and the bravery of this generation is inspiring.
There was a lot of nail biting going on in this read. Comparing the planes we have now to what they had then, I’m surprised anyone signed up for that job and came home.
Heartbreaking, inspirational and a darn good read!
