Riassunto: The true story of the 8th Air Force?s legendary 303rd bomb group
Although the United States declared war against Germany in December 1941, a successful assault on Nazi-occupied Europe could not happen until Germany?s industrial and military might were crippled. The first target was the Luftwaffe?the most powerful and battle-hardened air force in the world. The United States Army Air Forces joined with Great Britain?s already-engaged Royal Air Force to launch a strategic air campaign that ultimately brought the Luftwaffe to its knees. One of the standout units of this campaign was the legendary 303rd Bomb Group?Hell?s Angels.
This is the 303rd?s story, as told by the men who made it what it was. Taking their name from their B-17 of the same name, they became one of the most distinguished and important air combat units in history. The dramatic and terrible air battles they fought against Germany ultimately changed the course of the war.
