THE MIGHTY 8TH AIR FORCE. In January 1942, the order activating the US Air Forces in the British Isles was announced. On 12th May, the first contingent of USAAF personnel arrived in England, the beginnings of what was to become the largest air force in the world.The British people had never seen anything like them.Michael Brandon (Dempsey and Makepeace) presents the story of the courageous young Americans who fought the war from the foreign fields of eastern England. And of the local populations who welcomed them, resented them, admired and loved them. THE AMERICAN INVASION provides a powerful record of a momentous period in American and British history. The memories and experiences of surviving US airmen are the key to understanding the courage of men plucked from home and plunged into the terror of combat in the air. The recollections of their British hosts forms the backdrop to a programme that weaves fascinating personal tales around the story of one of the most costly military campaigns of WORLD WAR II.
