In constructing this film on the 98th Bombardment Group, we have watched hundreds of hours of film footage. We have utilized a variety of sources for research. What has remained is identified footage. We present this material without any narration (sound) added. Footage contained has not been enhanced in any way; some may be over exposed, other clips dark and even items may not have ideal focus. Nevertheless, we want to present the most comprehensive record of this group on film.

The footage in this movie contains film of the 98th when they were assigned to the 9th AF and 15th AF.

67 Chapters of material make up this historic dvd.

The majority of the footage is silent, however there is some unique sound with acrew interview and briefing.  Also, see results of the air war with a film that includes captured German footage showing the results of the bombardment of Ploesti, Rumania by the Allies.
