U.S.A.A.F. Combat Cargo Groups of the Second World War

About the Author

Major Jean K. Tool.


     Now nearly after fifty years after this little diary was begun, Jean Tool finally managed to transcribed his barely legible manuscript to typewritten words.  Jean kept a Diary from when he departed the USA on September 20, 1944, for his overseas assignment (destination unknown), through April 21, 1945 when he gave up recording in any detail his experiences.  He did manage after that to record a large number of experiences, which were noted at the time and transcribed into type for this book.  Add to that, that Jean was also a very, very good doodler, his b/w sketchs that are found through out the book are outstanding.  This book is a defininte must have for the CBI enthusist, for the one who wants in on some of the inside stories and memories from a Forgotten Theater.   Bill Bielauskas 3/22/2000
