BRINGING THE PEACEMAKER HOMEby Robert Taylor

On July 20th the 91st Bomb Group attacked anairfield near Leipzig, suspected of harboring the Luftwaffe’s revolutionaryMesserschmitt Me262 jet. As the formation spread out for the bomb run, the401st squadron took the low position – the most vulnerable to fighter attack.

As the crew of the B-17 ‘The Peacemaker’ steadied the ship to sight the target, the squadronwas attacked by Focke-Wulf 190s. As a Fw190 flashed past within 200 feet, itsguns blazing cannon shells ripped into Peacemakerand the B-17 began to slip below the rest of the formation. She was a long wayfrom home.

Robert Taylor’s dramatic portrayal picks up thestory as the injured bird limps towards the sanctuary of the English coast.That she has gotten this far is a miracle, due in no small part to the closeattentions of escorting P-51B Mustangs of the 361st Fighter Group.

To keep her flying, the crew jettisoning everything possible.The front hatch is open and bombardier Marion Havelaar has reluctantlydispatched his 20lb bomb sight to the ocean below – for him, an act of totalsacrilege, The Peacemaker made it backto Bassingbourne that day.
