  "Flying the Hump In Original World War II Color " by Jeff Ethell & Don Downie.   The capture of the Burma Road by the Japanese forced US airmen to fly 100's of missions a day across the rugged terrain of the Himalayan Mountains.  Bulldozers, bullets,  jeeps, gasoline, food and other supplies were flown in American C-47s and C-46s through dangerously foul weather in an effort to supply Allied troops with much-needed supplies.  200 original color photographs and exciting personal anecdotes reveal the massive scale of airlift accomplishments by US airmen.  Exceptional!   Hdbd.,  168 pages, 10 1/4" x 10 1/4",  16 b&w ill.

I am looking for former members of the 3rd Combat Cargo Group,  1st, Combat Cargo Group, 2nd Combat Cargo Group and the 4th Combat Cargo Group.  In fact I would like to hear from anyone who flew over the Hump during WW II, or flew any Combat Cargo Missions at any time (Berlin Air-Lift, Korea, etc.)
