B-24 Liberators over Tours, 1944

Here we see a flight of B-24 Liberators of the U.S. Army Air Force attacking Tours as part of the bombing campaign to support the D-Day landings. The front line was eighty miles to the north when this attack took place.

 Consolidated B-24 Liberator (Crowood Aviation), Martin W. Bowman. A well balanced book that begins with a look at the development history of the B-24, before spending nine out of its ten chapters looking at the combat career of the aircraft in the USAAF, the US Navy and the RAF.
