This story is about the men of the 376th Heavy Bombardment Group, one of the most famous and heavily decorated units of World War II. It is derived from the personal documents, letters, and words of its veterans, as well as from official records. The Group was unique in that itwas the only American heavy bomb group activated in overseas combat, the first American unit to bomb "Fortress Europe", and the first group to be based on the European continent.
