Produced by The First Motion Picture Unit, American Air Force, during World War Two. Target For Today is the Very best Filmed record of an American 8th Air Force raid on Nazi Germany. Made with unprecedented access at every level, this unique film follows a complete days raids from start to finish. On this particular day, the targets were Anklam, Marienberg, Danzig and Gdynia and the raids were carried out by over 400 B-17 Flying Fortress and Liberators in the Face of Ferocious fighter attacks. Target For Today reveals how the targets were chosen, and how intelligence and mission briefings were passed to the individual airfields. It then focuses on the experiences of the typical aircrews. Awoken at 3am, breakfast at 4, briefing at 5 and into the air at 7am for the start of the long and dangerous mission to the heart of Nazi occupied Europe... Combat cameramen flew with the bomber crews to film the deadly duels with Luftwaffe fighters, and capture the intensity and the horror of areal combat, with both fighters and bomber suffering heavy losses. They recorded the moment as bombs rained down over the targets, and the obvious relief of the crew returning safe once again for England and a detailed debriefing on the experiences...
