Weaving together cultural and military history, Glenn Miller Declassified tells the story of the musical legend Miller and his military career as commanding officer of the Army Air Force Band during World War II. After a brief assignment to the Army Specialist Corps, Miller was assigned to the Army Air Forces Training Command and soon thereafter to Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force, in the UK. Later that year Miller and his band were to be transferred to Paris to expand the Allied Expeditionary Forces Programme, but Miller never made it.
Miller's disappearance resulted in numerous conspiracy theories, especially since much of the information surrounding his military service had been classified, restricted, or, in some cases, lost.

Interesting but mechanical
This iBook helped me appreciate the immense contributions Glenn Miller made to the European was effort. On that count the book is excellent. The book title might lead one to expect some new information on the hows and whys of his 1944 disappearance. I found none of that. What I did find was way too. much unsubstantiated conjecture. So, read this book to get a wonderfully clear view of Glenn Miller's contributions. Do not read this book to learn anything new on his disappearance.
