What Happened to You Lazy Lou?

Paperback (96 pages)
A week before Christmas in 1944 and within minutes of take off from their base in England, two american aircraft collided in a tragic unnecessary accident, killing well decorated combat veterans and mortally wounding a beloved mascot.

What Happened to You Lazy Lou?

A compelling story of how the fates of 9th USAAF Transport crews and Bomber pilots of the Mighty 8th Air Force ended in tragedy a week before Christmas 1944. Within minutes of take off from their base at Barkston Heath, two american aircraft collided in a tragic unnecessary accident, killing well decorated combat veterans and mortally wounding a beloved mascot.

A very detailed insight into the life of these two crews who died on that fateful day and the circumstances that brought about the accident. It is both interesting and very sad with lots of photos and illustrations. Once you pick it up you can't put it done.
