Summary
Beginning with a crazy plan, and an even crazier reliance on the word of the Nazis, Operation Chowhound dropped food to 3.5 million starving Dutch civilians in German-occupied Holland. Between May 1 and May 8, 1945, it took raw courage to fly on Operation Chowhound, as American aircrews never knew when the German AAA might open fire on them or if Luftwaffe fighters might jump them. Dando-Collins takes the reader into the rooms where Operation Chowhound was born, into the aircraft flying the mission, and onto the ground in the Netherlands with the civilians who so desperately needed help
