From front flap of DJ: "The 82nd Fighter Group was one of the outstanding USAAF combat units of WWII. Trained in Southern Califomia and in Ireland during 1942, it entered combat over North Africa with the 12th Air Force in December of that year. The group saw continuous action for the next two and a half years, ending up in Italy as part of the strategic 15th Air Force. During this time its pilots were credited with shooting down 548 enemy aircraft, twenty-five of them becoming aces (five or more confirmed aerial victories). The group’s many other accomplishments included the receipt of three Distinguished Unit Citations. This is the story of the approximately 1200 men of the 82nd Fighter Group - officers and enlisted men, pilots and “ground pounders” - who, working together for 32 months, made it such a successful outfit. Although based primarily on official unit records, much of this history is told in the Words of the men who lived it and made it." [Oversized book.
