Surfing through Amazon and found a few free ebooks for the kindle, no idea on how good they are yet but thought they were worth sharing. Remembering the Dragon Lady: The U-2 Spy Plane: Memoirs of the Men Who Made the Legend Blechhammer about a B17 crash in Poland Kittyhawk Pilot which was mentioned on the P-40 thread and very enjoyable so far. Has anyone found any other gems?

Here are a couple of USAF bomber crew books in Epub format that I found interesting. We Were Crewdogs is about being a USAF-SAC B52 crewmember. The Wild Blue is about flying a B24 Liberator pilot in WW2 And here is the iconic USAF classic: Fate is the Hunter by Ernest K. Gann

Ah it seems amazon will only allow you to download an e-book if you have a kindle!
