D-Day Bombers

The Stories of Allied Heavy Bombers during the Invasion of Normandy

Stephen Darlow

Before Allied soldiers set foot on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944, American and British bombers helped pave the way by pounding German positions on the shoreline and farther inland, a vital mission that continued as the troops waded ashore and the battle beyond the beachhead began.

Overview
-

Before Allied soldiers set foot on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, June 6, 1944, American and British bombers helped pave the way by pounding German positions on the shoreline and farther inland, a vital mission that continued as the troops waded ashore and the battle beyond the beachhead began. In this lively look at D-Day in the air, eight different bomber crews--three American and five British--tell their unforgettable stories from inside B-17s, B-24s, Lancasters, and Halifaxes.
