Portrait of a Flying Lady: The Stories of Those She Flew with in Battle
(From the Foreword) George Menzel has an investigative mind, as one might expect of a man whose main career was with the FBI...he would not rest until he had traced the reason for an artist's choice of subject in a print that fascinated. The subject was a B-17 Fortress bomber bearing the markings of the squadron with which, as a young man, George Menzel had served during the trouble with Adolf Hitler and his supporters. Soon the detective discovered that the individual Flying Fortress portrayed by the artist had been involved in a remarkable adventure. And, like all good detectives, George Menzel did not rest until he had gathered and sifted all the evidence.
