In a prelude to the invasion of France, American air attacks began in February 1944 against railroad junctions, airfields, ports and bridges in northern France and along the English Channel coastline. Fighters from both Eighth and Ninth Air Forces made wide sweeps over the area, mounting strafing missions at airfields and rail networks. By 6 June, Allied fighter pilots had succeeded in damaging or destroying hundreds of locomotives, thousands of motorized vehicles, and many bridges. In addition, German airfields in France and Belgium were attacked.

The writing is on the wall, The Atlantic Wall...

The plans for OVERLORD are in full swing and there is much to be done before the invasion can proceed.  The Allies are putting relentless and constant pressure on the Axis forces in occupied France.  Although the German Luftwaffe has been severely damaged she is like a cornered dog---desperate and even more dangerous to the last bite.

"Good morning Captain.  I am Major Davis and I will be leading the bomber element on our strike today.  Today's target are the railyards at CAEN.  We need to disrupt all Axis transportation in preperation for the invasion.  You will be providing top cover for us today as we head to the target.

There is a pair of Spitfires that will be joining us as we approach the coast---however they will not have the fuel to stay with us there and back.  We are counting on you boys to keep us safe.  Let's get rolling."
