14 Roger Freeman American Eagles, Vol. 4: P-51 Mustang Units of the Eigth Air Force
Classic Publications November 2003 1903223199 / 9781903223192 First Edition Soft Cover Collectible - Like New 
1st Edition. CLEAN!! No marks. Might as well be new. Appears unread. . . . . ., ,. . . . . . . Of the primary fighter types used by the USA in the European Theatre of Operations in World War II, the P-51 Mustang became the principle escort for heavy bombers. There were over 1,700 in service by the end of hostilities, the majority with the 14 fighter groups of the Eighth Air Force, and it is the decor of these units' Mustangs with which this book is primarily concerned. Roger Freeman provides not only a valuable reference source for artists and modelers, but also aids the identification of aircraft in photographs. The photographs reproduced in this study have for the most part been selected to show particular markings in detail, and in the case of the P-51 Mustang, the variety of schemes is considerable. The book also reproduces a selection of combat reports from leading Mustang pilots.

19 Nancy Polette; Forward-Cassie Strom Angel in Fatigues: The Story of Colonel Ruby G. Bradley - The most decorated woman in the history of the US Army
Blessinks April 2013 0988846527 / 9780988846524 Soft Cover New 
Never Opened / Never Read ............... ..................... Colonel Ruby Bradley (December 19, 1907 – May 28, 2002) was one of the most decorated women in United States military history. She was a native of Spencer, West Virginia but lived in Falls Church, Virginia, for over 50 years. Bradley entered the United States Army Nurse Corps as a surgical nurse in 1934. She was serving at Camp John Hay in the Philippines when she was captured by the Japanese army three weeks after the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. In 1943, she was moved to the Santo Tomas Internment Camp in Manila. It was there that she and several other imprisoned nurses earned the title 'Angels in Fatigues' from fellow captives. For the next several months, she provided medical help to the prisoners and sought to feed starving children by shoving food into her pockets whenever she could, often going hungry herself. As she lost weight, she used the room in her uniform for smuggling surgical equipment into the prisoner-of-war camp. At the camp she assisted in 230 operations and helped to deliver 13 children. When U.S. troops captured the camp on February 3, 1945, Bradley weighed only 86 pounds (39 kg). She was then returned to the United States where she continued her career in the Army. She received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of California in 1949. Bradley served in the Korean War as Chief Nurse for the 171st Evacuation Hospital. In November 1950, during the Chinese counter-offensive, she refused to leave until she had loaded the sick and wounded onto a plane in Pyongyang while surrounded by 100,000 advancing Chinese soldiers. She was able to jump aboard the plane just as her ambulance exploded from an enemy shell. In 1951, she was named Chief Nurse for the Eighth Army, where she supervised over 500 Army nurses throughout Korea. She was promoted to the rank of colonel in 1958 and retired from the Army in 1963.
