The B-17 Flying Fortress remains an endearing classic to the aviation world, but none knew this grand "lady" better than those who piloted her during World War II. Return to Base, a masterfully written autobiography, relates the bombing history and personal experience of Jesse Pitts, B-17 copilot and member of the 379th Bomb Group, Eighth Air Force, operating out of Kimbolton, England. Second Lieutenant Pitts and the crew of the Penny Ante flew twenty-five missions over France and Germany from 1943 to 1944. This memoir is a powerful and penetrating look back at this "band of brothers."
