Imphal, The Hump and Beyond
U.S.A.A.F. Combat Cargo Groups of the Second World War
| "Flying the Hump In
Original World War II Color " by Jeff Ethell
& Don Downie. The capture of the Burma Road by the Japanese forced US airmen to
fly 100's of missions a day across the rugged terrain of the Himalayan Mountains.
Bulldozers, bullets, jeeps, gasoline, food and other supplies were flown in American
C-47s and C-46s through dangerously foul weather in an effort to supply Allied troops with
much-needed supplies. 200 original color photographs and exciting personal anecdotes
reveal the massive scale of airlift accomplishments by US airmen. Exceptional!
