In the bestselling BAND OF BROTHERS, Stephen E. Ambrose portrayed in vivid detail the experiences of soldiers who fought on the bloody battlegrounds of World War II. THE WILD BLUE brings to life another extraordinary band of brothers - the men who volunteered to join the American Air Force and undertook some of the most demanding and dangerous jobs in the war. Focusing on the men of the 741st Bomb Squadron and, in particular, the crew of the DAKOTA QUEEN, these are the boys turned pilots, bombardiers, navigators and gunners of the B24s, who suffered 50 per cent casualties during conflict. With his extraordinary talent for bringing alive the action and tension of combat, Ambrose sweeps us along in the B24s as their crews fought to the death to reach their targets and destroy the German war machine.

Das Buch widmet sich einem bislang übersehenen und verdrängten Phänomen im Bombenkrieg gegen das Deutsche Reich: Übergriffen und Morden an abgeschossenen alliierten Flugzeugbesatzungen. Der Bombenkrieg als Trauma einer ganzen Generation ließ bislang eine Beleuchtung dieser Gewaltverbrechen kaum zu. So erhielt sich die von der NS-Propaganda aufgebaute Vorstellung einer aufgebrachten Bevölkerung, die Rache an ihren Peinigern nahm. Der Autor durchbricht dieses Bild, beleuchtet die Wirkungskomplexe des Bombenkrieges und zeichnet anhand von Fällen aus Österreich und Ungarn nach, welche Funktion dieser Form der Gewalt im Rahmen einer NS-Herrschaft "unter Bomben" zukam. Anhand von umfangreichem Quellenmaterial zu über 1.000 Flugzeugabstürzen sowie 26 detaillierten Fallstudien wird dieses Phänomen erstmals umfassend erschlossen.
