To The Editor:

Seventy years ago, Aug. 17, 1943, the entire strength of the American heavy bomber forces in England set out to raid two vital industrial targets deep in southern Germany. The 8th Air Force (aka The Mighty 8th) sent 231 B-17s carrying 480 tons of bombs against the ball bearing factories in Schweinfurt and 146 B-17s, carrying 307 tons of bombs, against the Messerschmitt 109 fighter factory in Regensburg.
