Discover The Friendly Invasion in East Anglia

In the spring of 1944 the Allied strategic bombers were required for "Overlord", and the weight of attack on Germany itself was inevitably reduced. But by now we were the masters of the air. The bitterness of the struggle had thrown a greater strain on the Luftwaffe than it was able to bear. By being forced to concentrate on building fighters it had lost all power of strategic counter-attack by bombing back at us. Unbalanced and exhausted, it was henceforth unable to defend either itself or Germany from our grevious blows. For our air superiority, which by the end of 1944 was to become air supremacy, full tribute must be paid to the U.S Eighth Air Force, once it gained its long range fighters.
