The first ground and air elements of the 303rd Bomb Group arrived at Molesworth, England in October 1942–in time to begin air operations during the early stages of the Eighth Air Force’s campaign against Germany. High losses and the lack of fighter cover made the Hell’s Angels’ early missions a treacherous prelude for one of the most successful bomb groups in the Eighth Air Force.

This documentary traces the group’s early training in the United States and documents the remarkable record the group compiled on the air front against Germany. The film includes valuable eye witness accounts taken from the extraordinary oral history interviews recorded by the East Anglia Air War Project over two decades. Many of these air crews and ground personnel tell us their stories with clarity and drama as they take us back to their air war against Germany. With astonishing archival footage that brings the story of the Hell’s Angels back to life, this story of the air war delivers a new dimension to the American experience in World War II.
