General (then Colonel) Smith commanded the 384th Bomber Group from November 1943 until late 1944, beginning with a demoralized and ineffective unit and polishing it into one of the Eighth Air Force's most effective, using techniques that were inventive and of mixed popularity. Command as seen through his eyes is the core of his memoir, though he still leaves pages for well-told descriptions of his own often harrowing combat missions, and life in wartime England. He also unsparingly describes the toll his assignment took on his failing marriage back home. This is a vivid picture of the air war in Europe, with insight into the mind of a commander under the most severe pressure who admits his fear and acknowledges success. Recommended for laypersons as well as specialists.
