George Lott's Air Force 1922 - 1959, written by George Lott. The manuscript was discovered after his death in 1989, not a word has been changed.
“I began at the bottom and finished near the top, and I enjoyed it all. I do not think that I could have done better in any other walk of life, and I would do it all over again. Maybe, in the light of hindsight I’d do it differently. For one thing, I would try not to get so personally identified with each job, and to delegate more. But I would still have to do my best. I still feel mortified at my carelessness in not having my goggles down on that fateful day in July 1940.” - George Lott.
