B-25s of 321st BG over Anzio

B-25s of 321st BG over Anzio

This photograph from the the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet shows a formation of B-25 Mitchells seen from below as they flew over the Anzio bridgehead at dawn on 22 January 1944.

Original Caption: FOR THE 321st IT WAS THE FIFTH - Over Anzio at dawn on January 22, 321st B-25's flew inland 30 miles to hit a road junction and block traffic to the invasion beaches. The amphibious operation was the fifth which has been supported by the veteran B-25 unit.

This document comes from a pamphlet produced by the 321st Bombardment Group after the war, which told the story of the group's activities from 15 March 1943-15 March 1945 in the form of a newspaper.

Many thanks to Christine Stewart for sending us this document, which came from the collection of her father in law Eugene W. Stewart, a staff sergeant in transportation with the 321st Bombardment Group.
