  Ready or Not: Into the Wild Blue
The Aviation Career of a B-17 Bomber Pilot

Success Networks, 300 pages, paperback


J. Francis Angier was born to fly. Raised on a Vermont farm, trained as a B-17 pilot and later as a jet and helicopter pilot, his aviation career spanned over thirty years. His love of flying was only exceeded by his love of family and country.

Shot down over Germany on his 33rd combat mission in October of 1944, he spent over seven months as a POW before being liberated. His training, air battles capture and survival are part of the story. So too are many of the experiences that positioned and prepared him for his adventures.

As you read his accounts, his insights and his feelings, you'll come to understand and appreciate one of the many heroes of what Tom Brokaw has called, “The Greatest Generation”.
