The 8th Air Force is tasked with destroying the Luftwaffe and the Nazi industrial factory. In the spring of 1943, he suffered heavy losses with little result. Prime Minister Churchill persuades President Roosevelt to switch from daytime bombing to the RAF night bombing strategy. The RAF deployed a first generation of ground-based mapping radars and electronic navigation aids that allow them to find targets out of the dark. But the Air Corps is trained in daytime precision bombing, and the change will be costly in terms of time and equipment, with chances of success unknown. Air Corps leaders decide they must be ready to make the switch, and Major Charles Davis is one of those chosen to fly with RAF Bomber Command and learn how they do it.

But the losses of Bomber Command are also high, and Charlie Davis’s chances of survival are not good.

Burkhalter also announced that three of his popular books are now available in audiobook format: Everything We Had, A Snowball’s Chance and Boxcar Red Leader.

One reviewer said, “Buy it, read it and tell everyone you know about it. Tom Burkhalter is as good as Clancy and Griffin.

This is the author’s five star element.

Brilliant! The books that are part of Tom Burkhalter’s “No Merciful War” series are, without exception, rare gems that are entertaining, historically relevant, and a joy to read. Tom hasn’t just created a cast of characters as real as the officers and enlisted men I’ve been privileged to serve with, he makes you want to see more. Even more impressive is his ability to succinctly describe the tactical and technical aspects of aerial combat. A must read for anyone interested in the Pacific War when victory was far from certain.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book
I am a fan of Tom Clancy and John Grisham. I love the way these guys use rich detail to help tell the story and help me ‘feel’ and ‘see’ what I’m reading. Tom Burkhalter is that kind of storyteller. He’s in their class. I’m reading Tom’s second book and I’m going to give him such a rave review. Tom is not an aspiring author. He is the real deal. A meticulous master storyteller and researcher. I will read all of his books. Yeah, he’s so good!
