About this product
- DescriptionMore than 150,000 American Jews served in the air war during World War II. Despite acts of heroism and commendations, they were subject to bigotry and scorn by their fellow servicemen. Jews were considered disloyal and cowardly, malingering in the slanderous (and n-existent) Jewish Quartermaster Corps or sitting out the war in easy assignments. Based on interviews with more than 100 Jewish air veterans, this oral history features the recollections of pilots, crew members and support personnel in all theaters of combat and all branches of the service, including Jewish women of the Women Airforce Service Pilots. The subjects recall their combat experiences, lives as POWs and anti-Semitism in the ranks, as well as human interest stories such as encounters with the Tuskegee airmen.
