    D-Day...the flag raising at Iwo Jima...the liberation of concentration camps... These are the types of memories and images that come to mind when one thinks of World War II. The horrific battles, the daring missions, the glorious victories. But the unsung heroes, the forgotten saviors of the war are all too easily overlooked. Between 1944 and 1945, 1st Lt. Philip Webster flew in 35 missions in the Far East. Composed by his widow, Charlotte Webster, Thirty-Five Missions Over Japan presents Lt. Webster’s never before published notes of those very missions. Through this compilation, readers are given an up close and personal glimpse into every possible aspect of the brave pilot’s service, including everything from the planes he shot down to the conditions in which he flew. Stored away for more than 60 years, Lt. Webster’s notes take readers on an insightful, enlightening historical journey they won’t like likely forget. Read for yourself and see just how this intrepid hero earned the... More > Distinguished Flying Cross (twice). A highly recommended read. Lauren Fennell Apex Reviews< Less

    Wow! What a page turner! I couldn't put it down and was able to devour it in just a couple of days. This book is filled with amazing stories, one-in-a-million encounters and had me on the edge of my seat! I wish I was able to ask questions. There may be a tie to one of the men mentioned in the book that would make many people in southern Colorado interested. I could see this becoming a movie. In the notes, it was as though I could hear him speaking. I am so proud of you Char Webster, this was an undertaking of over ten years. It was well worth the wait!

    When I agreed to help Char Webster publish her late-husband's WW2 memoir, I had no idea of the scope and grandeur of the battles fought in the Pacific Theater. I use the word "grandeur" to convey the enormous scale of the battles waged and the terrible loss of lives on both sides. Yet this book neither glorifies nor apologizes for actions taken by the Americans during the war. It realistically portrays the grueling life of one B-29 pilot flying mission after mission between the tiny island of Saipan and Japan. This book is a must-read for everyone interested in the battles of the Pacific Theater. It contains material found nowhere else but Lt. Webster's heretofore unpublished diaries.
