End Game by Nicolas Trudgian features Me262s attacking B-24 bomber formations over the Alps.
For bomber crews, any daylight bombing mission almost certainly meant combat. If it wasn't the attentions of the determined Luftwaffe fighter pilots, it would be an aerial carpet of flak that welcomed them en-route to target, and again, on the journey home. On most missions the Eighth Air Force aircrews had to contend with both. Playing a major role in the great raids on Germany and other targets in occupied Europe from early in 1944, equipped with the Consolidated B-24 Liberator, the USAAF Second Air Division flew no fewer than 95,048 sorties. Based in Norfolk, England, the crews also attacked targets far distant in Norway, Poland and Rumania. Published in support of the Memorial Trust of the Second Air Division in Norwich England, Nicolas Trudgian's spectacular Limited Edition recreates a scene showing B-24s of the 467th Bomb Group under attack by Me262 jet interceptors on February 25th, 1945.
