Hit The Target : Eight Men who Led the Eighth Air Force to Victory over the Luftwaffe Paperback / softback
by Bill Yenne
Barely a month after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the US Army formed its Eighth Air Force, the first bomber command on either side to commit to strategic daylight bombing, with the goal of defeating the Third Reich from the air.
The men of the Eighth paid the price in both lives and blood.
Hit the Target introduces readers to those who made the Eighth Air Force the formidable juggernaut it soon became, whose careers paralleled the early history of aviation and who helped to revolutionize airborne warfare and win World War II.
