On March 6, 1944, and the Eighth Air Force would launch a full scale
assault on the German capital of Berlin. High Noon over Haseluenne
is a microcosm look at one bomb group that flew the mission and the
catastrophic results that ensued. The book deals with the 100th Bomb
Group, The Bloody Hundredth and the mission that solidified that
moniker. The concentrated attacks by the Luftwaffe would destroy
sixty-nine American bombers that day, the single highest loss for
any mission by the 8th Air Force, and fifteen of those losses would
come from the 100th Bomb Group. We take you inside the men and
machines that had to brave one of the deadliest air battles of World
War II and let them tell the story. High Noon over Haseluenne is filled
with firsthand accounts, personal diaries, letters home, news clippings,
and illustrated with over 200 photos.
