I’m joined by Greg Lewis.

With Gordon Thomas he is the author of  Shadow Warriors: Daring Missions of World War II by Women of the OSS and SOE.

In 1943 a lone B-17 Bomber set off on a solo reconnaissance mission, it was to be a 1200 mile round trip. Passing within range of Japanese airbases they were swarmed by Zero fighters...

It would be only plane of the war where two of the personal would win the Medal of Honor.

I'm joined by Bob Drury, co-author of Lucky 666: The Impossible Mission.
