The raids, which General Hap Arnold called "the greatest strike ever" helped cripple German aircraft production and signaled the beginning of the end for the Luftwaffe.
The documentary Target for Today documents these three air raids from planning, to briefing, preparation, and then reveals in unparallelled sequences the brutal battles waged at 30,000 feet. It's a fascinating, and deeply moving account, entirely featuring the real men of the Mighty Eighth Air Force.
Featured on this deluxe edition DVD is the original Target for Today in its entirety, and two bonus films. One is a short combat newsreel showing the 8th Air Force in action, and the other "Target Berlin" which describes the assembly of a Lancaster bomber.
