     "Silhouettes of Fear"    Embark on a journey back in time!  Relive the exciting and frightening memories of Ben Deatherage.

     Deatherage, a Flight Engineer in an Army Air Force C-47 cargo plane, gives you a rare glimpse at one of the forgotten "Theaters of War" the CBI, China-Burma-India, of World War II.

    This theater did not feature actors.  The participants were real men and women; pilots, soldiers and nurses.  They were sons and daughters, brothers and sisters.  They did not work for applause or acclaim.  They worked for freedom and their lives.  Unfortunately, far too many paid with theirs.

112 pages. Illus., 5 3/8 X 8 3/8,  paperback.

Available from:                     Ethell Deatherage  (Ben, 4th Combat Cargo Squadron, Flight Engineer)

                                           245 Grant Ave.

  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.)
