{detailed description}0 n the eve of D-Day in 1944, the US Eighth Air Force in England had grown from
modest beginnings into a mighty leviathan capable of pulverising the heart out of the German war machine and smashing from the skies the might of the Luftwaffe. In this, the second of two volumes in the popular 'in Camera' series, Martin W. Bowman presents a fascinating and wide ranging picture of the 'Mighty Eighth' as it supported the invasion of north-west Europe through the summer of 1944 with thousands of fighter and bomber sorties, and its massive and sustained heavy bomber assault in daylight on the German heartland that brought final victory to the Allies in May 1945.
These evocative photographs have been obtained from a variety of official and private sources, and many of them are published here for the first time. They include dramatic images taken by combat photographers in the heat of battle, facing the same deadly hazards as the aircrews themselves; by contrast there are scenes of rural tranquillity where the perennial activities of the English countryside form an incongruous backdrop to the aircraft of war on their dispersal pans.
Illustrated with more than 200 photographs, the US Eighth Air Force in Camera 1944-1945 offers a revealing and fascinating insight into the life and times of the world's greatest air force.
