In October of 1943, the Eighth Air Force made a series of "maximum effort" bombing raids into occupied Europe. The targets were Anklam, Marienburg, and Gdynia in Poland, all industrial centers for the Nazi war machine.

The raids, which Gen. Hap Arnold called "the greatest strike ever", helped cripple German aircraft production and signaled the beginning of the end of the Luftwaffe.

The documentary "Target for Today" documents these three air raids from planning, to briefing, preparation, and then reveals in unparalleled sequences the brutal battles waged at 30,000 feet. It's a fascinating, and deeply moving account, entirely featuring the real men of the Mighty Eighth Air Force.

Also featured on this deluxe edition are two bonus films: a combat newsreel showing the 8th Air Force in action, and "Target Berlin" which shows the construction of a Lancaster bomber.

B&W films. Run time: 2.5 hours!
