Description

Fw190s of II./JG I charge into the bomber stream as B-17 Flying Fortresses of the 100th Bomb Group carry out the first successful daylight raid on Berlin, March 6, 1944. With throttles wide open, 56th Fighter Group P-47 Thunderbolts come hurtling down to intercept and B-17 gunners are working overtime; the air is full of cordite, smoke, jagged pieces of flying metal and hot lead. We are in the midst of one of the fiercest aerial battles of the war.
