The most personal and dramatic item in the book is the astounding photo of the B-26 with the starboard engine being blown off by a German 88. My friend, T. Sgt. Jesse "Will" Largent was the top tuurret radio man who escaped that crash and was later held prisoner in a German naval hospital in Toulon.
For more on this, Google Will Largent B-26 crew in a story by Homer Bigart of the New York Herald Tribune dated August, 1944.
