Every day when weather permitted, the bomber crews of the USAAF Eighth Air Force flew missions deep into Germany and other destinations under the rule of Nazi Germany. And every day they knew the enemy fighters were waiting for them. Only the fighter escorts stood between the bombers and potential decimation.
Big Brothers and Little Friends – this was the enduring bond between the bomber crews and fighter pilots of the USAAF Eighth Air Force in their prolonged and hotly contested air war against Hitler’s Nazi Germany, 1942-1945.
Renowned Aviation Artist Gerald Coulson has reconstructed the deadly war game being played out in the icy, thin stratosphere high above a hostile territory, February 1944.
