WWII fliers' accounts enliven 'Fields of Fire' History

By Russ Long
If you lived during the World War II invasion of Europe, you will be enthralled with the descriptions by Austin J. "Buck” Buchanan and W.L. George Collins in their book, "Into Fields of Fire” (Xlibris, $21.99).


It is the story of the 438th Troop Carrier Group, which spearheaded the invasion in Normandy by dropping the first stick of 24 paratroopers near the town of St. Mere Eglise, France. The story is taken from notes Buchanan wrote daily as he flew missions towing gliders and dropping paratroopers. Collins, who flew in the same group, edited and compiled the notes.
