Watched 3rd episode. This is about the raid on August 17, 1943 to Regensburg/Schweinfurt, the deepest penetration over Nazi Germany by the 8th US Air Force at that time.

That attack was afterwards considered a failure; 60 B-17s were lost in total, 600 men. In addition, dozens of B17s that could subsequently be written off. After this attack, another attack on Schweinfurt followed only 2 months later; result once again disastrous for the Americans.

At that time, the escort fighters had a range as far as the Dutch/Belgian-German border; It was not until February/March 1944 that the Americans received an escort fighter (P51 Mustang) that could escort the B17s and B24s to, for example, Berlin.

Bombing during the day by large numbers of heavy bombers was in fact 'learning on the job', because this had never been applied before; this started on a very small scale in August 1942. Germany itself was attacked from January 1943.

During 1944, daytime bombing became effective - only after the German surrender in May 1945 was the reality made public piece by piece. Not during the war, from the point of view of Allied propaganda... Morale and public opinion had to be kept militant...

So it was definitely not as heroic as it is made out to be.

A highly romanticized series about the bombers of the Second World War. The action scenes seem good, but you don't get to see the ultimate consequences of attacks and that is a shame. This series is too sappy and doesn't give the feeling that you are in the middle of a war like Band of Brothers or The Pacific. It's all not exciting enough.
