The new book "My Darling Boys" tells the story of three New Mexico farm boys who went off to fly combat aircraft in World War II. Eighty years ago, the author’s uncle Oscar Allison was a flight engineer and gunner on a B-24 bomber, Pistol Packin’ Mama, that was shot down over Austria. He was captured and spent 15 months in German stalag prisons. His memoir, given to the author in 1984 following Oscar’s death, forms the core of the book and rivetingly records the minutes Oscar spent after jumping from the plane.
