Lagniappe Lecture "The 70th Anniversary of Schweinfurt/Regensburg Double Raid" by Seth Paridon

August 14, 2013

H. Mortimer Favrot Orientation Center at The National WWII Museum
On August 17, 1943, the 8th Air Force launched its largest bombing raid of the war to that point.  Some 376 B-17s were launched from England to strike at the ME-109 fighter factory at Regensburg and the Kugelfischer Ball Bearing factory at Schweinfurt.  The complex plan went awry from the start and the resulting air battle was one of the largest in World War II, resulting in the loss of 60 American B-17s.  Manager of Research Services Seth Paridon will describe the double strike using veterans’ oral histories from both Schweinfurt and Regensburg. For more information, call 504-528-1944 x 229.
