Sam and the 100th Bomb Group £5.95

Sam And The 100th Bomb Group' written by Sam Hurry and Malcolm Finnis was published in March 2009. It is a wartime tale and a piece of Norfolk social history, telling the story of two young boys who spent more time on a wartime U.S.A.A.F. operational bomber airfield than could be imagined. One lad's house was actually within the restricted confines of the airfield and Sam, now a trustee of the 100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum, lived close nearby. Read how Sam, aged 9-11 when the Americans were at Thorpe Abbotts, was virtually adopted by the 351st Squadron ground crews. He assisted in such chores as carrying flares up to the Control Tower, laying the 'gooseneck' flarepath of an evening and burning the petrol and oil from the hardstands, during which he set fire to a tent.

John Bennett - Letters from England £8.00

Col. John Bennett was twice Commanding Officer of the 100th Bomb Group, during which time the group received a Presidential Citation. On the 1st August 1944, John was ordered to duty with the 3rd Air Division where he served on the staff, first under Major General Curtis E. LeMay, and then under Major General E. E. Partridge.

The 100th needed John Bennett. Before becoming commanding officer, the group had gone through a spectrum of leaders; one then was relieved of his command, two of them were on short-term assignment gaining war zone experience, one became ill, and the other was KIA on his first mission.

This book contains some of the letters written by John Bennett to his family, and is a valuable insight to the private thoughts of arguably the greatest leader of the 100th. John Bennett's time at Thorpe Abbotts is also the inspiration behind the award winning film 'Twelve O'clock High'.
