Description: Hell Hawks!is the story of the 365th Fighter Group and theirnbsp;close-quarters fight against Hitler's military. Beginning just prior to D-Day, June 6, 1944, the nbsp;grouprsquo;s young pilots (most were barely twenty years old and fresh from flight training in the United States) flew in close support of Eisenhower's ground forces as they advanced across France and into Germany. They flew the rugged, heavily armed P-47 Thunderbolt, aka the Jug. Living in tents amid the cold mud of their front-line airfields, the 365th's daily routine had much in common with that of the G.I.s they supported. Their war only stopped with the Nazi surrender on May 8, 1945. During their year in combat, sixty-nine pilots and airmen died in the fight across the continent. The Group's 1,241 combat missions forged bonds between these men that remain strong sixty years later. This book tells their story, the story of the Hell Hawks.
