On Thursday, October 14, 1943, two hundred and ninety one B-17 Flying Fortresses set out for a strategic bombing raid on the factories in Schweinfurt. Sixty of those planes never returned and six hundred and fifty men were lost during the course of that mission. It was the greatest failure that the United States Air Force had ever suffered and became known as “Black Thursday.”

Martin Caidin’s Black Thursday: The Story of the Schweinfurt Raid is a brilliant account of that day that should never be forgotten. This book uncovers in thrilling detail the build-up to that fateful raid as the ground crew prepare the aircraft and the aviators are briefed on their mission ahead.

By consulting with first-hand accounts and interviewing survivors Caidin’s book takes the listener to the heart of the action as the planes burst into battle in the skies above Western Europe.
