Ray and Ralph Barber have been mistaken for each other their whole lives. After all, they are twins. During World War Two, it seemed that even fate might have them mixed up.
The twins were eighteen year old college students when they volunteered for the Army Air Corps, along with three of their friends. The Barbers were kept together during most of their basic training. They even were sent to the same air base in England for active duty, although they weren't allowed to fly together. In spite of this, the first mission for each twin was almost his last.
