CDT Brian Anthony, History Major, West Point:

"Winter Journey Through The Ninth" provides an introspective and tantalizing glimpse into one of World War Two's most forgotten subjects: tactical aviation. Overshadowed by the controversies involving the strategic bombing campaigns, MAJ Harry Frank gives an inside track to what the OTHER air forces did to win the war. As a historian, I found Franck's work a gold mine. He interviewed the pilots who flew the missions, the soldiers these missions supported, and the prisoners who survived them. Readers gain a feeling and appreciation for the mission and the men of the Ninth Air Force. He also provides his own points of view of what wartime Europe was like. Any fan of World War Two, and especially the air war needs this book.
