Description

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 air crewmen presented with the Medal of Honor, America’s ultimate military decoration. Brian O Neill brings the group's colorful combat history to life with a mix of first-hand accounts, raw statistics and concise mission narrative.
