Speaker - 
Maury Purcell, a member of the HHI Sunset Club, shared information about John Edwards, his father-in-law.
John Edwards led the largest air armada in the history of war.  He was known as "Pappy" Edwards because he was the oldest of the crew - he was 23.  He was considered to be one of the best pilots.  People are unaware of much of this history - such as the Christmas Eve 1944 battle -because the war plans were filed away.
Two books that tell more of the heroic efforts of this man and his crew during World War II are:
"Hitler's Last Christmas - The Day the Entire Mighty 8th Air Force Entered the Battle of the Bulge"
"Gentlemen from Hell- Men of the 487th Bomb Group: Leaders of the Largest Eighth Air Force Mission of World War II During the Battle of the Bulge"
