Publisher Comments:

Subtitled: "The Suicide Attack On The Eighth Air Force, 7 April 1945." 35 b/w photos.

Synopsis:

By April 7, 1945, Germany had to struggle to stop the invading enemy forces, relying on small-scale operations that required limited quantities of fuel and weapons, and calling upon relatively inexperienced air crews. How did one of the world's most victorious airforces come to such a crisis? The answer lies in this amazing story, told in minute-by-minute detail, of the Luftwaffe's final flight, and the suicide mission directly into a raiding formation of US bombers.

Synopsis:

By April 1945, Germany was well on its way to losing the war, suffering an onslaught from the Soviets on the East and ceaseless bombardment by British and U.S. planes on the West. The German command chose to fight back with a small-scale operation requiring only limited resources: they sent relatively inexperienced pilots from the famed Luftwaffe on a suicide mission flying directly into a formation of U.S. bombers. Follow this death-defying and little-known story in minute-by-minute detail.

Synopsis:

On April 7 1945, their cause almost lost, the advanced aircraft and weaponry which could have turned the war in their favour still unavailable, the best pilots dead or captured, a small group of Luftwaffe crew staged a desperate attack on an Eighth Air Force bombing fleet.
