Sixteen years after the war, B-17s were a pretty rare item- yet Caidin, Board and a few dedicated, determined associates accomplished the near-impossible feat, not only finding the bombers but flying them across the Atlantic to England. The important preparations, and the wild and hairy flight itself, make for exciting reading, as the sights, the sounds- the feelings of a whole World War II experience are brought alive again. Added to those sober recollections, however is a hearty belt of male humor -- aerial horseplay, daredevil stunting, a few boys will be boys episodes at home and abroad -- that makes EVERYTHING BUT THE FLAK lively reading that will bring back many memories of World War II and create many more for Caidins readers.(From the front dust jacket flap)
