Late in WWII Allied air power like the 362nd Fighter Group were charged with taking their P-47 Thunderbolts and destroying targets on the ground. By the end, the 362nd had destroyed over 5,000 trucks, 350 tanks and 275 artillery pieces. This book looks at the missions and the men who flew them, supporting the D-Day invasion, seeing action in Normandy and then driving across France and Germany. The most telling contribution came during the Battle of the Bulge when they demolished the Sixth Panzer Armee. It’s an interesting look at air-ground aviators.
