Thunderbolts – Conquest of the Reich

Documentary of the final months before Germany’s surrender.  Notably, the 362nd fighter group flew over 3000 combat missions during this time.  Many pilots were lost due to bizarre accidents; not just enemy action described.  Flying at treetop level, shrapnel from bombs dropped, small knolls, or objects like power lines caused casualties as well.
