020534 - THE KILLING SKY: An US 8th Air Force Bomber Mission To Germany
By Jaap Van Der Kuylen
The US 8th Air Force bombardment mission on 11th January 1944 was considered as one of the roughest and hairy missions flown on that date. During that harassing mission to Central Germany, the 8th Air Force lost 60 heavy bombers and 5 fighter planes. This book unfolds the factual story of that day, mainly told by the men who were involved in that dramatic mission.
The Author spent 20 years researching this important day of the air war, during which time he contacted many veterans, next-of-kin of perished airmen, all who have told their own stories of events that occurred during that day and the people who were involved in it.
