Between April and July 1944, Truman Smith flew 35 bombing missions over France and Germany. He was only 20 years old. Although barely adults, Smith and his peers worried about cramming a lifetime's worth of experience into every free night, each knowing he probably would not survive the next bombing mission. Written with blunt honesty, wry humor, and insight, The Wrong Stuff is Smith's gripping memoir of that time. In a new preface, the author comments with equal honesty and humor on the impact this book has had on his life.

Honest account of the realities of war
Living through and participating in the cruelties of war and still trying to remain humane - this is the subject of this rare treasurechest of a war diary. As the title says the author and former US bomber pilot Truman Smith knew that he didn't do "the right stuff" but still did it to participate in the overpowering of Nazi Germany. His account is rarely honest but still has a touch of humor.
