John H. Horn’s wartime experiences as a B-24 pilot in the famous “Liberandos” bomb group, the 376th, are recounted in this work by his son, John E. Horn.

Horn was one of millions in World War II who did their jobs. He was mighty lucky and blessed to have come home unscathed. Most of the real learning about air combat was on the job. Military schools and training don’t really produce combat-ready men and women. They produce attitudes as well as thinking and re-acting skills. Actual combat is the real teacher.

John was forever grateful to his crew and the leaders of the 376th Bomb Group who suffered his inexperience and naiveté. Without their patience, he would not have developed into a competent, safe, and living combat pilot.
