1997 Hard Cover. 192 pp. By April 1945, Germany was well on its way to losing the war, suffering an onslaught from the Soviets on the East and ceaseless bombardment by British and U.S. planes on the West. The German command chose to fight back with a small-scale operation requiring only limited resources: they sent relatively inexperienced pilots from the famed Luftwaffe on a suicide mission flying directly into a formation of U.S. bombers. Follow this death-defying and little-known story in minute-by-minute detail. Includes black-and-white photographs. View more info
