Overview
In the early 1940s, the 8th U.S. Army Air Corps was asked to fly daylight missions over Germany in non-pressurized, unheated aircraft that were built in the early 1930s (at the same time Model "A" Fords were being produced). They were to fly missions against the largest, most modern air power in the world, the German Luftwaffe, right into the sites of the world's heaviest and most dangerous concentration of anti-aircraft guns. Experts considered the whole plan "insane." Even Britain's Royal Air Force refused to bomb during daylight. Armed with B-17 Flying Fortresses and sheer grit, the Mighty Eighth turned this sure "recipe for failure" into the ultimate victory, destroying Hitler's war machine and cutting short his plans for world domination. For more than six decades, the stories of these incredible heroics have been untold as the brave men and women who were "over there" during World War II remained silent. Now, as the numbers from the Greatest Generation dwindle, we are at risk of losing this pivotal part of our history forever. "Fear No Evil" is an attempt to collect and preserve some of the most gripping "war stories" from America's struggle against the Third Reich. It is a nod of head to the B-17... and a heartfelt show of gratitude to the valiant heroes who preserved our freedom.
