Bonjour,
Sur internet je viens de trouver la référence de ce livre "Into the Mountains Dark". Thomas Houlihan y traite de la guerre à La Salle et à Saint-Remy. Ma mère y habite encore et me parle souvent des "Américains" qui ont bombardé et sauvé son village. Peut-être l'auteur l'a-t-il connue... Elle avait 20 ans.
J'aimerais acheter ce livre. Merci de me dire comment faire.
Cordialement

Bonjour, Monsieur! "Into the Mountains Dark" is a great book! It is not in French, c'est domage, but I hope you can find a way to enjoy it!

The entry for 5 Jun 1943 about 77 B-29s bombing Thailand is erroneous. The B-29 didn't fly until the 944, and the entry in 1943 duplicates the correct event given under 5 Jun 1944.
