010371 - 8TH AIR FORCE: American Heavy Bomber Groups in England 1942-45

By Gregory Pons - Full colour throughout.

In World War Two, the American strategy for complete victory over Nazi Germany involved the utter destruction of major industrial areas. Air raids were carried out as early as 1942 by hundreds of heavy bombers from the 8th Air Force, based in England. The missions flown by B-17 crews over occupied Europe are illustrated in this book with archive photographs and private pictures from the personal albums of pilots, crew members, mechanics and Air Force photographers. This book features over 100 large format photographs of actual missions, planes and crews from World War Two. It features full colour reproductions of servicemen's scrapbooks, famous aircraft, their liveries and 'nose art', flying clothes and equipment.
