Raid over Heilbronn

Issue Number: 5183

Christmas, 1944.

In the skies over a cold, wintry Germany, a squadron of Avro Lancasters forged onwards towards the city of Heilbronn. Their bellies were filled with bombs, ready to flatten the railway depot transporting the munitions that fuelled the Nazi war machine. But among the icy clouds and streaks of hail were hidden dangers… and the raid was just beginning.
