B-25Js of 321st BG Bridge Busting in Italy

B-25Js of 321st BG Bridge Busting in Italy

This photograph from the the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet shows a formation of B-25J Mitchells on a bridge busting mission in Italy. The B-25J can be identified by the combination of the forward turret location and the glazed nose.

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.
