At the outbreak of World War II, the United States was in no way prepared for war.
And, to defeat Nazi Germany, the Allies had to crush the vaunted Luftwaffe—the most powerful and battle-hardened air force in the world. No invasion of Europe could be fought without air superiority.
The United States was faced with the challenge of turning “amateurs” into an air force to take down the Luftwaffe.
Jay Stout has written the first in-depth examination of America’s most distinguished bomber group—the 303rd Bomb Group flying from Molesworth, England.
His book, Hell’s Angels: The True story Of the 303rd Bomb Group in World War II, chronicles America’s efforts to destroy Nazi Germany’s ability to wage war.
