Target For Today (DVD)
Target For Today is the very best filmed record of an American 8th Air Force raid on Nazi Germany.
Produced by the First Motion Picture Unit, Army Air Force.
Created with unprecedented access at every level, this unique film follows a complete B-17 raid from start to finish on Nazi Germany.
On this day, the targets were Anklam, Marienberg, Danzig and Gdynia, and the raids were carried out by over 400 B-17 Flying Fortresses and Liberators in the face of ferocious fighter attacks.
Rising at 3am, by 7am the 8th Air Force is on their way to Germany, with camera crews capturing their every moves on board, including their meetings with Luftwaffe fighters, German factories being hit and B-17s shot down. General Arnold called this the greatest strike ever.
