Dad was a B-24 Bombardier Navigator Instructor. He was given orders to England and a short leave. While on leave, they signed the armistice with Germany and he was subsequently released from the Army Air Corps from a base in Iowa.Thanks. RZ.

I just read Mighty Eighth (WW II BOMBER)

Sounds like my moose hunts!

And the Germans obtained the plans for the Norden bomb sight in 1938, but never followed up on it as they foresaw no need for it.

The music is louder than the narrative. A no go for me.
