The skies over France and Germany in 1943 were full of sounds. The drone from the massed American B-17s as they marshalled for a raid. The waspish retaliation from the engines of the Luftwaffe as they sped into attack against the machine guns of the bomber fleet. This is the story of the life of one bomber, in an English base of the American Air Force, in those dark days of War.
