Rampage of the Roarin' 20's
The Illustrated History of the 312th Bombardment Group During World War II

From altitudes low enough to look the enemy in the eye, the 312th Bombardment Group (312th BG) rampaged their way across the Pacific, driving Japanese forces back in a determined fury. Rampage of the Roarin' 20’s meticulously chronicles the exploits of the famed “Roarin' 20's” in the South West Pacific Area from Australia to Japan in the A-20 Havoc and later the B-32 Dominator flown by the 386th Bombardment Squadron, the only unit in the U.S. Army Air Force (USAAF) to operate the type. With about 350 pages of thrilling text and over 700 photographs, this volume of the sensational Eagles Over the Pacific series will stand as the definitive history of the 312th. Five exhaustively researched appendices detail aircraft, personnel and casualties, and a 16-page color section features 35 full-color aircraft profiles and a number of paintings by aviation artist Jack Fellows. No military history library is complete without this book.

During May 1945, the 386th Bombardment Squadron converted to of the B-32 Dominator, the only unit to operate this heavy bomber alternative to the B-29 in combat during World War II. Also check out International Historical Research Associates publications on 5th Air Force group histories including: Warpath Over The Pacific, Revenge of the Red Raiders and Ken's Men Against The Empire.
