World War II Book Group

The World War II Book Group will discuss The Wrong Stuff: The Adventures and Misadventures of an 8th Air Force Aviator by Truman Smith (University of Oklahoma Press, $19.95). Between April and July 1944, Truman Smith Flew thirty-five bombing missions over France and Germany. He was only twenty years old. Although barely adults, Smith and his peers worried about cramming a lifetime's worth of experience into every free night, each knowing he probably would not survive the next bombing mission. Written with blunt honesty, wry humor, and insight, The Wrong Stuff is Smith's gripping memoir of that time. In a new preface, the author comments with equal honesty and humor on the impact this book has had on his life.
