This rewritten autobiography presents the life and views of Paul W. Tibbets, the pilot of the Enola Gay, the bomber that dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. Most of the book details his experiences in training and during World War II, with a focus on preparing for and carrying out the Enola Gay mission. The final chapters cover Tibbets' later assignments, and his views on media events related to the bombing of Hiroshima. Tibbets believes that the bombing was necessary to end World War II, and was a thoroughly considered decision. The book contains 20 pages of photographs.
