Black Monday: The Eighth Air Force’s 250th Combat Mission

“Black Monday” for the Mighty Eighth

On March 6, 1944, the US Eighth Air Force conducted the first allied daylight raid in force over the German capital. The raid represented a change in strategy and a turning point in the war. But it came at great cost. The History Guy recalls the raid that came to be called “Black Monday” for the Mighty Eighth.
