COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Clayton Nattier | 369th Bomb Squadron, 306th Bomb Group, 8th Air Force - Army Air Corps

4:58   |   The 306th Bomb Group flew in very tight formations. This greatly lessened the losses from German fighters, which faced withering fire from multiple aircraft if they got close enough to attack. B-17 pilot Clayton Nattier also had the luxury of his own fighter escorts, which were not available earlier in the war.
