Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first title in the Elite Units series to deal with an American bombardment group, this title focuses on the 303rd BG, dubbed the 'Hells Angels.' One of the very first B-17 units assigned to the newly created Eighth Air Force in England in September 1942, the 303rd was in the vanguard of the daylight bombing campaign through to VE-Day. Awarded a Distinguished Unit Citation in January 1944, the 303rd also had two of its aircrewmen presented with the Medal of Honor, Americas ultimate military decoration. Brian O Neill brings the group's colourful combat history to life with a mix of first-hand accounts, raw statistics and concise mission narrative.

Synopsis:

The 303rd Bombardment Group was one of the first B-17 units to be assigned to the Eighth Air Force in England in September 1942. This title includes a comprehensive listing of missions flown, combat losses and medal winners together with numerous first hand accounts.
