Deenethorpe traces the story of the 401st Bomb Group (H) from activation and training in the United States to combat operations in the European Theater of Operations during World War II. Based at Deenethorpe, west of Cambridge in wartime England, the men of the 401st took the war to Germany. During combat operations, the 401st flew 254 missions and compiled the best bombing accuracy record for all B-17 bomb groups in the Eighth Air Force.
Together with British families in the surrounding villages and towns, these young Americans shared a common commitment to defeat the Nazi threat to mother England and free peoples everywhere. A unique look at the men who spearheaded the air war against Germany and the price that they had to pay.
