USAAF At War: 1942-1945 - Archive Radio Recordings Vol. 1
Hear rare audio material recorded before, during, and after combat operations by
men of the United States Army Air Force in the European Theatre. You’ll love these first-hand eyewitness accounts by our fighter pilots and bomber crews of the 8th and 9th Air Forces. Notable missions include the daring low-level B-24 raid on the Ploesti oilfields in Romania in August 1943, operations over Normandy in June 1944, the Ardennes campaign, the Rhine crossing, and daylight raids on Bremen, Lorient and Berlin. Also includes intercom recordings made on board the famous B-17 Memphis Belle during a raid on Wilhelmshaven in May 1943. This remarkable CD begins with an evocative medley recording by Captain Glenn Miller and the Army Air Forces Training Command Orchestra from 1944.
