Book and photo of WW2 bombs drop from a B-26 over Germany

Posted By on August 17, 2018

While monitoring a military history Twitter feed, decided to add this “bomb bay view” photo from the World War II bomber group my father-in-law flew with. He was the navigator for the 394th Bomb Group of Martin Marauder B-26s and flew nearly 50 bombing missions over Germany. They were known as the “Bridge Busters.” (Read the book in PDF: Bridge Busters: The 397th Bomb Group (Medium) and the B-26 Marauder in World War II)
