An Emotional Gauntlet
From Life in Peacetime America to the War in European Skies
Stuart J. Wright
"A compelling story. Wright establishes the strong spirit these men shared, based on their pilot's pledge that he would bring them backback from each mission and back to resume their peacetime lives. An Emotional Gauntlet stands out for its integration of prewar civilian life with wartime experiences. To me, this is the essence of America's story in the war, and I am glad to find a book that comprehends this and tells the story from this perspective."Jerome Klinkowitz, author of Yanks over Europe: American Flyers in World War II
"Superb. I highly recommend An Emotional Gauntlet. The main thread, about the Corky crew, is terrific."Martin W. Bowman, author of B-24 Liberator: Combat Legends and Wild Blue Yonder: Glory Days of the U.S. 8th Air Force in England
"[An Emotional Gauntlet] describes each mission in great detail, including the D-Day invasion. It is very informative, descriptive, awesome . . . filled with humor, chaos, horror, and tragedy."Harriett Gustason, Freeport Journal-Standard
