Knapp, Doolittle and Spaatz

This photograph from the the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet shows Col Robert D. Knapp (on the right), commander of the 321st Bomb Group, confering with Major General Doolittle (centre), commander of the Northweat African Strategic Air Force and Lt General Spaatz, commander of all American Air units in the theatre.

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.
