Schweinfurt-Regensburg Mission by Martin Middlebrook

Book Description

"Enthralling eye-witness histories."--"John Keegan" . On August 17th, 1943, for the first time, the entire American bomber force based in Britain struck deep in Germany. They targeted the Messerschmitt aircraft factory at Regensburg and the ball-bearing factories at Schweinfurt...with disastrous results. One in six bombers failed to return and the U.S. Air Force suffered its worst defeat of World War Two. The best-selling author of "The Berlin Raids" and "The Battle of Hamburg" now gives the same meticulous attention to this momentous setback. Working from original documents and personal accounts of survivors (military and civilian) on both sides, he reveals how the events of that fateful day, with its harrowing losses, destroyed any hopes of ending the war quickly.
