Osprey Aviation Elite 11 : 303rd Bombardment Group

This book focuses American Bombardment Group, and specifically the 303rd BG, dubbed the 'Hells Angels.'

Awarded a Distinguished Unit Citation in January 1944, the 303rd also had two of its aircrewmen presented with the Medal of Honor, Americas ultimate military decoration. Brian O Neill brings the group's colourful combat history to life with a mix of first-hand accounts, raw statistics and concise mission narrative. Text by Brian D.
