The true story of the "Burma Bridge Busters" in China-Burma-India.

Along with Gen. Claire Chennault's "Flying Tigers," the men and planes of the 490th Bomb Squadron became famous as the "Burma Bridge Busters." This is their story.

From late 1942 to the end of the war, their incredible feats of low-level bombing and strafing of Japanese held bridges, airfields, and troop facilities in occupied Burma hindered the Japanese advance in Asia, and provided critical air support for the Allies fighting on the ground.

The author's uncle was a radioman/waist gunner in the 490th, and was killed on a mission late in the war. His body and those of his comrades aboard their fallen B-25 Mitchell bomber was not recovered until four years after the war had ended.

This book is both a search for his memory, and a tribute to the men and history of the squadron in which he served and sacrificed his life.
