My Library Shelf — F

Today’s book has the honor of being the first autographed book I purchased.

The author was not present that day. He’d been to the store recently and I was fortunate enough to pick up the last copy in stock.

Flight of the Enola Gay by Paul W. Tibbets

If you have an interest in World War II and the beginning of the Atomic Age, this is a must-read.

As an autobiography, this book necessarily focuses on the background, training, and experiences of one man. The fact that this military pilot was selected to fly the first atomic bomb makes it unique.

You may need to go hunting for this one. I’d suggest you start at the library and then check the used bookstores or the gift shops of museums with flying or military themes.
