Illustrated with Black & White Photographs and Maps. 119 pages On a late 1944 afternoon in New Guinea a weather front built up quickly and blocked the way home to more than three hundred U.S. Fifth Air Force aircraft, returning from attacking Hollandia. Over enemy territory, and caught between mountains and the sea, there was little option but to take on the storm. By dusk that evening thirty-seven aircraft were missing or had been destroyed.
