Short Synopsis
The breathtaking, never-before-told, true story of a historic air force bombing mission in 1943 Germany.

Full Synopsis
On September 6, 1943, three hundred and thirty-eight B-17 "Flying Fortresses" of the American Eighth Air Force took off from England, bound for Stuttgart, Germany, to bomb Nazi weapons factories.

Dense clouds obscured the targets, and one commander's critical decision to circle three times over the city—and its deadly flak—would prove disastrous. Forty-five planes went down that day, and hundreds of men were lost or missing.

Focusing on first-person accounts of six of the B-17 airmen, award-winning author Robert J. Mrazek vividly re-creates the fierce air battle and reveals the astonishing valor of the airmen who survived being shot down—and the tragic fate of those who did not.

"Mrazek's well-told and splendidly researched account of the Stuttgart raid is bolstered by narrator David Drummond's appealing and razor-sharp performance." ---Library Journal Starred Audio Review
