WARBIRDS IN THE CLOAK OF DARKNESS

Author Sandra Fabian Butalla and the book about Bob Holmstrom.

They are $20 and the profit will be split with the American Legion and the Hastings VA. 

 

The book begins with his unpredictable childhood until now.

 

Waiting in the frozen forest for hours near the border of Nazi Germany, people of the resistance wait for the weapons, supplies, and help from secret agents they so desperately need. They all quietly listen in the darkness for the sound they anxiously anticipate. Finally from a distance, they hear the rumble. It comes from something low in the dark sky, something huge — something black. It is their salvation and it is bringing what they have prayed for. Enter the world of a young American Airman as Bob Holmstrom becomes part of the dangerous, highly secret “Carpetbagger” missions. With Spies, Special Ops. and Extreme Danger, the Carpetbaggers were “sworn to secrecy for forty years after WWII.” After more than seventy years, most people have not heard about them or the OSS and its many covert operations during the war. This true story lifts the veil of secrecy on one of America’s best-kept secrets.
