Crop Duster: A Novel of World War Two
JDB Communications, LLC is proud to announce a Second Edition of Crop Duster: A Novel of World War Two by John D. Beatty. The Second Edition tells the same gripping story as the 2014 First Edition, with a cleaner typography and an ebook edition.
In the frozen skies of World War Two Europe, two mighty air forces fought in a deadly ballet of sudden death. The Americans attacked with their bombers again and again, dropping their deadly cargoes on factories, cities, homes. The Germans defended with their fighters day after day, charging the deadly guns of the bombers, defending their factories, cities, homes...
A Wisconsin farm boy with a flying father learned to pilot airplanes before he could drive a car. Answering the call after Pearl Harbor, John Miller learns to fly the B-17 Flying Fortress with its ten heavy machine guns. In the massive formations over Europe, the interlocking fields of fire were devastating to any attackers.
The son of a butcher, Otto Thielmann, is a boxer who learned to fly gliders as a teenager. When Germany called, he answered...and became a fighter pilot in the deadly Focke-Wulf FW 190, called a Würger—shrike—that could claw a B-17 out of the sky.
Miller's and Thielmann's lives were so different, but so similar, they had to try to kill each other.
From the author of the Stella's Game Trilogy, Crop Duster: A Novel of World War Two brings you scenes of air combat, of the devastation of air bombardment to the targets, the attackers, the defenders, and the survivors
