In just six days, the United States Strategic Air Forces changed the course of military offense in World War II. During those six days, they launched the largest bombing campaign of the war, dropping roughly ten thousand tons of bombs in a rain of destruction that would take the skies back from the Nazis . . . The Allies knew that if they were to invade Hitler’s Fortress Europe, they would have to wrest air superiority from the mighty Luftwaffe. The plan of the Unites States Strategic Air Forces was extremely risky. During the week of February 20, 1944—and joined by the RAF Bomber Command—the USAAF Eighth and Fifteenth Air Force bombers took on this vital mission. They ran the gauntlet of the most heavily defended air space in the world to deal a death blow to Germany’s aircraft industry and made them pay with the planes already in the air. In the coming months, this Big Week would prove a deciding factor in the war. Both sides were dealt losses, but whereas the Allies could recover, damage to the Luftwaffe was irreparable. Thus, Big Week became one of the most important episodes of World War II and, coincidentally, one of the most overlooked—until now.

'James Holland is a master' BBC History It was to be the battle to end the air war once and for all. During the third week of February 1944, the combined Allied air forces launched their first-ever round-the-clock bomber offensive against Germany. The aim was to smash the main factories and production centres of the Luftwaffe and at the same time draw the German fighter force up into the air and into battle. Big Week is the knife-edge story of bomber against flak gun and fighter, but also, crucially, fighter against fighter. Following the fortunes of pilots and aircrew from both sides, this is a blistering narrative of one of the most critical periods of the entire war. Big Week was the largest air battle ever witnessed, but it has been largely forgotten – until now.

In the years before the outbreak of World War II, there was a general consensus amongst military strategists that strategic bombing had the ability to win wars. However, no-one could foresee the devastation that German radar-directed interceptors would inflict on large bomber formations. With the increasingly urgent need to eliminate these German fighter-aircraft prior to D-Day, a concerted two-phase effort, codenamed 'Operation Argument', was launched by USSAF. Targeting aircraft factories with hundreds of heavy bombers escorted by the new long-range P-51 Mustang, the operation, now known as the 'Big Week' campaign, was designed to destroy aircraft production on the ground and force the Luftwaffe into combat to defend these vital facilities, allowing the new escort fighters to take their toll on the German interceptors. Packed with specially commissioned artwork and maps, this title is a detailed and fascinating analysis of 'Big Week' – history's first ever successful offensive counterair (OCA) campaign.

It is April 1944, and World War II is raging in Western Europe. Lieutenant Roy Stevens is an American P-51 Mustang fighter pilot who was just authorized to engage in all-out dogfights against the German Luftwaffe during his next assignment. On the eve of his mission, Roy writes letters to his girlfriend and family in Iowa without any idea that he will soon be led to uncover some of the war's darkest secrets. With orders to patrol the airspace over Cologne, Germany, Roy takes off in the darkness of early morning, prepared to do whatever it takes to defend his country. But when he is suddenly attacked from behind by a German fighter pilot, Roy bails out of his plane into enemy territory where he is quickly captured by German forces and made a prisoner of war. As dire circumstances and a moment of chance propel him to accepting his most important and challenging mission to date, Roy learns firsthand the significance of the bloody conflict as his fate-and the fate of others-is changed forever. "Man of the Sun" is the historical tale of an American airman during World War II as he bravely fights for his country, survives capture by the Germans, and ultimately gambles everything to save a young soul from a horrifying fate.
