ARTIFACT: This is a rare World War II US Army Air Force (USAAF) 451st Bomb Squadron (322nd Bomb Group) 9th Air Force unit history book. The cover page has many pictures of the people and aircraft of the squadron. The entire book is filled with pictures, information, and written experiences on the squadron. It is a compelling read. The book has several photos of the 451st's actions as well as a list of their combat missions and casualties. Many photos document the unit's travels, including to Beauvais-Tille, France, Belgium and Germany. The book's cover is embossed with a great 451st insignia: a gorilla dressed in a football uniform and goggles who is about to hurl a bomb from atop a cloud.

VINTAGE: Circa late 1940's.

SIZE: 190 pages with black and white photographs (some one-color colorized); approximately 11-1/4" in height and 8-3/4" in width and 13/16" in thickness.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Paper, ink, embossed vinylized cotton cover, book board.

ATTACHMENT: N/A.

MARKINGS: See attached images

ITEM NOTES: This is from an Air Force Books collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJJZ93 LDDEX7/17 PSDEEX7/17 SDEEX04/20

CONDITION: 7 (Very Fine): There are a few torn pages and folded edges. Near the final 3rd of the book, the binding is more loose. There is a stain in the top right corner of the cover. The pictures and condition of what is contained inside, however, is in excellent shape.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
