On September 6, 1943, 338 B-17 “Flying Fortresses” of the American Eighth Air Force took off from England, bound for Stuttgart, Germany, to bomb Nazi weapons factories.

Dense clouds obscured the targets, and one commander’s critical decision to circle three times over the city—and its deadly flak—would prove disastrous. Forty-five planes went down that day, and hundreds of men were lost or missing.

Focusing on first-person accounts of six of the B-17 airmen, award-winning author Robert J. Mrazek vividly re-creates the fierce air battle and reveals the astonishing valor of the airmen who survived being shot down—and the tragic fate of those who did not.

  • “With power and passion, Robert J. Mrazek tells the story of one of the most calamitous American bombing missions of World War II…Mrazek writes about the ill-fated Stuttgart Raid as though he had gone into the heart of the Reich with the audacious American bomber crews…a great book with ‘hold on to your seat’ suspense.”

    Donald L. Miller, author of Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany

  • “Mrazek has uncovered the moment of profound exigency for the bomber crews, when the course and consequence of the air war converged and rendered it in vivid clarity.”

    " Somewhat disjointed and confusing narrative that includes both fascinating details on aircrew experience as well as more tedious details of command structure and inter-personality conflicts. Worth reading, but at times becomes a chore "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Julia | 3/16/2011

    " This is about a "failed" bomber mission over Germany during WWII... it tells the stories of different crew members who survived and were able to escape from the German soldiers. Pretty cool stories. "
