B-25s of 321st BG over Brenner Pass

This photograph from the the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet shows a formation of B-25 Mitchells from the group attacking a bridge at San Michele in the Brenner Pass during a bombing campaign early in 1945 that was meant to cut off the German armies in northern Italy.

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.
