Tactical Operations of the Eighth Air Force June 44 - May 45

This is an account of tactical air operations carried out by the US 8 Air Force from D-Day to the end of the war in Europe. It relates what was done to support the ground operations on D-Day itself, and immediately thereafter. It then follows the campaign inland. It also covers general air operations, supply drops and operations against the V-bomb offensive, Operation Crossbow. Further details include attacks on radar installations, coastal batteries, air-sea rescue and leaflet drops. The appendices are detailed and give a statistical picture of Crossbow operations and anti-German Airfield attacks. A valuable addition to the land warfare papers on D-Day and subsequent operations already published by MLRS Books.
