The War Files
Whilst the Royal Air Force concentrated on bombing Germany by night, the United States Air Force carried out a dangerous strategic bombing campaign against Nazi Germany during daylight hours. On every raid some bombers suffered damage, exploding in mid-air, falling from the sky in pieces or in tears of flames. Operating from airfields in rural England, the Flying Fortresses and Liberator Bombers of the Eighth Air Force, and later the Ninth Air Force, escorted by Thunderbolt and Mustang fighters, learnt hard lesson in the skies over Europe. Daylight bombing was not exclusive to Europe and our programmes ends with a brief look at the Pacific theatre of war and Hiroshima.
The DVD version was released on 19th August 2004 as "Daylight Bombing Raids over Europe".
