The Whaleoil Book Club is a compilation of recommended books from readers

This holiday season we are going to review approximately one book per day so that it gives people a chance to do their own research on the books and authors by using the links provided and not miss out by being bombarded by a whole lot at once.

The purpose is to share with others sources of information and/or entertainment to aid with relaxing as people take some time off work.

Each post is set out with the name of who submitted it, the name of the book and author and a short review in the form of a comment from whoever submitted it.

Todays review came from Paul.

The Day we Bombed Switzerland.

By Jackson Granholm.

Paul said: “Eighth Army Air Force memoir and legal defense of the crew who bombed Zurich. Workplace screw ups don?t come much bigger.”

Amazon said: “This book tells of the author’s military service spent flying aerial bombing runs over Europe with the 8th USAAF. Granholm describes operational events and horrors of massive daylight bombing raids over Germany and its occupied territories, from D-Day until the end of WWII. Declassified documents, plus the author’s own recollections, make for compelling reading.”
