The 448th Bomb Groups in Norfolk, by Peter Bodle and Patricia Everson, subtitled 'A pictorial history of the USAAF's 448th Bombardment Group at Old Buckenham during WWII'
Booklet published by Liberator, 60 pages. A5 size booklet (N4110P1)
The 448th Bomb Group were based at Seething, a few miles south of Norwich, during the Second World War. The 448th were part of the 2nd Air Division of the 8th Air Force, and arrived in Europe in November 1943. During the war they completed 262 missions (involving over 7,000 Sorties!), but despite this high number, their losses were relatively light compared to some other bomb groups.
This booklet is one of a series from the publishers detailing the life and times of American servicemen who were part of the United States Air Force stationed in Norfolk during the Second World War. Each booklet is packed full with photographs, and most of these photo's were taken by serving airmen with their own cameras. Some of the photographs were official, some were semi-official and many were very much un-official, and together each booklet provides a fascinating insight into the airfields, men and planes during the war. Each booklet is printed on high quality glossy paper, with a full colour card cover, and the rear side cover depicts some of the colourful jacket patches of the various operational squadrons.
Condition of the booklet is generally excellent.
