This is the fascinating story of a Mighty 8th Air Force bombing mission from planning to execution. You will follow these crews from their early morning wake-up to their formation grouping over England. Then on to Germany as the 8th Air Force bombs German factories and airfields. Witness the German Luftwaffe put up an explosive defense over the Reich.

General Hap Arnold called this raid "..the greatest strike ever". This documentary film is the finest U.S. Army Air Force documentary ever made featuring actual 8th Air Force personnel in combat. See B-17 Flying Fortresses, B-24 Liberators and A-26s all attack the heart of Germany in one massive daylight bombing raid.

It's not easy to witness 8th Air Force planes and crews fall from the sky. You will relive their success and sorrows in gut-wrenching aerial combat. The losses were great, so were their accomplishments.

From the Contributor:

This is a great documentary that shows how the air war over Germany was fought. There were long missions, requiring a tremendous amount of stammer, courage and patience. The losses, though not revealed to the American people at the time were great. Almost to the point of stopping precision day light bombing raids. This documentary tells it as it really happened-you feel you are in the pilots seat.

Review:

" I was in the 8th Air Force-this is a great video. I never knew it existed till now". "What a price they paid for our freedom". "Were all those losses necessary, couldn't they have waited for more long range fighters?" "Best Aviation video in my collection". -- From the Producer
