On the heels of the enormous success of his masterwork The Grapes of Wrath and at the height of the American war effort John Steinbeck, one of the most prolific and influential literary figures of his generation, wrote Bombs Away, a nonfiction account of his experiences with US Army Air Force bomber crews during World War II.

Now, for the first time since its original publication in 1942, this audiobook presents an intimate look into Steinbeck’s introduction to the then-nascent US Army Air Force and its bomber crew—the essential core unit behind American air power that Steinbeck described as “the greatest team in the world.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “It takes a delicate touch to prevent John Steinbeck’s Bombs Away from sounding like a piece of jingoistic propaganda. Scott Aiello narrates in a conversational tone, with a dash of cynicism. His delivery works well for Steinbeck’s government-commissioned account of the US Air Force in 1942. It’s a fascinating snapshot of history at a time when our nation is facing renewed surges of nationalistic fervor. Aiello keeps up the pace, eking intrigue out of some of the drier passages. When he lingers on the more personal and emotional stories, they’re given due weight.”
