Excerpt from an amazon.com review dated November 29, 2016:
Five Stars!
“Mark’s pulling together of the story about his Father In-law, Casey a B17 co-pilot, is the story within the story revealing a son-in-law’s inspiration, methods, and dedication….Mark provides details that could be used as a guide for anyone with similar desires to discover past details about specific unheralded people and events. Casey was just one of some 39000 Allied airmen processed through one POW camp, Dulag Luft…I highly recommend Casey and the Flying Fortress.”
