This book tells the story of Lt. Arthur David Morgan, Jr. Lt. Morgan became a B-24 Liberator pilot via the Aviation Cadet Program in 1942-1943 and his journey from civilian to Liberator pilot and beyond. It culminates in his fateful mission of 28 July 1944 to bomb the Astro Romano refining facility south of Ploesti, Rumania. The mission that day included not only the practical application of GP bombs to an enemy target but also the indoctrination of five new 759th BS (HV) crewmen on their first combat flight. All went well until just seconds after the bomb drop. Lt. Morgan's plane was hit by flak and crash landed in Western Rumania. They were soon POWs and bound for Bucharest and environs. Their story is an amazing one and has not been told in such detail in decades.
