The day we bombed Switzerland

£4.99

Product description

This work covers the author's military service spent flying aerial bombing combat over Europe in the 8th USAAF, stationed in England. It describes operational events and the horrors of massive daylight bombing raids over Germany and its occupied territories, from D-Day until the end of World War II in Europe. The attack on neutral Swiss territory, described in the book, was one of several during World War II by American bomber formations caused by navigational error. These events were never reported in the American press, and their attendant records were classified as top secret for many years. The author, appointed by his Air Division commanding general, undertook the court martial defence of two young flying lieutenants involved in the incident. These men led a squadron of huge B-24 bombers in a misguided attack upon Zurich.
