    by “interviewing POWs and airmen and studying statistics,squadron histories, diaries, prisoner affidavits, and other materials.
    I think “by” should be there before studying.

    1. In the END

      @disqus_pxQdy6UXp6:disqus Shukla ji batana zara.

      1. In the END

        Aage ‘by’ jo laga hai wo to ‘interviewing’ ke liye lag gaya fir bich me conjunction ‘and’ ke bad jo verb(participle) hai uske liye ‘by’ to lagna chaeye na?

      2. Sachin Shukla

        kya? ji

    2. Srishti

      Inverted comma lga hai .
      Hillenbrand ke according jo event and situation describe kiye gye hain uski biography mei usko verify aur support kiya gya hai “POWs aur airmen ko interview karke aur baaki ko study karke”

      1. In the END

        Thanks Srishti, you are always there for much needed help. Yaha pe agar inverted comma nahi rehta then we should place ‘by’ before ‘studying’, right?
