About the Author

Harry H. Crosby, a navigator flying B-17 bombers with the “Bloody 100th” Bomb Group of the US Eighth Air Force during World War II, was one of the few survivors from the legendary unit, which flew missions almost daily against strategic targets all over Europe. For his service, he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star, and Croix de Guerre, among many other honors.

Crosby was born in North Dakota in 1919 and raised in Iowa. He received his Masters from the University of Iowa and his PhD from Stanford University. He was a professor of rhetoric at Boston University until his retirement in 1984. In addition to A Wing and a Prayer, Crosby authored and coauthored multiple textbooks on college writing. Drawing upon his combined military and university experience, he developed curriculum at the US Air Force Academy. Crosby died in Massachusetts in 2010.
