Wings of Glory Tom Cervoremembers : " I have to say it's the only flight sim that makes you feel that you've stepped into a movie--an aviation epic of the 30's. The characters are cliches, but REAL cliches. Origin didn't have too much luck when they strayed too far from space."

After the Liberators: A Father's Last Mission, a Son's Lifelong Journey
After the Liberators: A Father's Last Mission, a Son's Lifelong Journey- by William C. McGuire.

The author Bill McGuire from Larchmont, NY wrote me: "This book tells the story of the 8th Air Force mission to Friedrichshafen, Germany of March 18, 1944, in which the 392nd BG lost 14 Liberators. Specifically, it is also about my Navigator dad's final hours, and how I first came to learn the details in the mid-1990s, secure his files, interview surviving vets and visit his old base in England, his burial place at St. Avold, France and the crash site in southwestern Germany (for his plane and two additional heavies.)"
