cottrell2-SMALL-WEBWARBIRD RADIO – The United States’ largest and most bloody battle of WWII was the Battle of the Bulge.  It began on December 16, 1944 and ran through January of the next year and resulted in as many as 180,000 casualties for both sides and as many as 3,000 innocent civilians lost their lives, too.  It was “war” at its text-book definition of ugly.

However; there was a moment, albeit brief, that reminds the history of human nature doesn’t always follow the path of brutality.

Warbird Radio Presents – The James Kunkle Story!

Kunkle

WARBIRD RADIO – Nearly everyone has imagined what they would do in “the clinch” — the time where circumstances demanded positive, selfless action, right NOW.  Nearly everyone, sees themselves in the role of the hero.   It’s a human fantasy that has fueled popular entertainment for centuries.

Jim Kunkle’s story is no different.  In a nutshell, upon discovering his formation was about to be attacked by a superior number of enemy fighters, and unable to warn the rest, turned his P-38 into the attack in an effort to disrupt the blow.  Listen as host John Mollison talks with James Kunkle (370th Fighter Group) about a fateful moment over German skies in September of 1944.
