Remembering the Cloud

In this invigorating book, Connie Kirby sits down with her father to ask him about his experience as a pilot during World War II. In this interview format, Major Charlie Reddig tells deeply engaging stories of his early days flying planes around the farms of his community, and how he and his friends enlisted to fight in the war, and their adventures in the Pacific theatre. All of this culminates in the harrowing tale of Major Reddig’s fateful flight over Hiroshima just after the A-Bomb decimated the city. In vivid detail, he recounts what he—perhaps the last living American to witness the devastation—saw and felt as he Remembers the Cloud.
