Here, my friends, is an invitation to really get to know what our forefathers went through in one theatre of World War II—namely the young men of the Fifteenth Air Force’s 464th Bomb Group, whose B-24 Liberator crews flew harrowing missions day after day into Hitler’s Third Reich.
This new web page features dozens of rare photographs and original documents about their experiences from start to finish—including a filmed interview with Staff Sgt. Clarence “Red” Eudaily, the original Flight Engineer of my father’s first air crew. Together one day in August 1944 over the oil refineries of Pardubice, Czechoslovakia, my father and Red Eudaily performed acts of heroism together that saved their aircraft and brought them both the Distinguished Flying Cross.
Their stories are both hair-raising and inspiring—So, come and explore!
