"It is one of the most successful and important planes in history. Taking on the worst that the Luftwaffe had to offer, the Flying Fortresses of the 8th Air Force flew daylight bombing missions over the most heavily defended cities in Europe. Though they suffered unprecedented losses, the young American airmen of the 'Mighty Eighth' turned the tide of the war. With never-before-seen home movie footage of B-17s returning to their British bases and the white-knuckle recollections of pilots and bombardiers, HEAVY METAL chronicles the development and operational history of America's first four-engined bomber, flying high over wartime Berlin on the raids that eventually crippled the Nazi regime."--Publisher's website

Dear old Kit : the historical Christopher Carson by Harvey L Carter( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The figure of Kit Carson strides through the literature of the American West in heroic size. Trader, trapper, scout, brigadier general of New Mexico Volunteers, and many other things besides, he has appealed to the public imagination as no other frontiersman has. Many biographies and two versions of his "autobiography" have been published. Yet much of the legend still remains to be separated from the facts, declares the author of this new biography. "I am an admirer of Carson," says Mr. Carter, "and I have no wish deliberately to debunk him, but I am interested in correcting the statements of uncritical hero worship made by many writers." Kit is allowed to speak for himself, as far as possible, through an exact transcription of his dictated reminiscences made from the manuscript in the Newberry Library, Chicago. Persons and places are clearly identified, and Kit's slips of memory are corrected in definitive annotation of his account. One hundred years of speculation about the identity of the man who transcribed Carson's story is ended. Mr. Carter has established positive identification, based on carefully assembled facts. A new assessment of Kit's character and reputation is included, as well as an annotated account of the last years of his life. This fresh look at America's greatest western hero will interest professional historians as well as all readers who head straight for the "western" shelf in bookstores -- Book jacket
