Operational Overview
The Eighth Air Force was the crucible of strategic bombing in World War II for the USAAF. The idea that the enemy could be brought to their knees by daylight bombing was the mission of the Mighty Eighth. From a few underequipped, undertrained, and unescorted squadrons in 1942 to the air armada of 1945 and beyond, the Eighth has become a legend of the air. This campaign will celebrate the heritage of the Eighth Air Force, in all its incarnations, from 1942 to today.

1. Entry must represent the Eighth Bomber Command or Air Force from its inception in January, 1942 to today. No what-ifs.
