Operation Clarion Report

This report was produced by the 8th Air force to review a strategic offensive launched against transportation infrastructure in Germany February 22-23 1945. At the time it was shown only to service personnel -- not the general public. The operation was designed to interrupt the flow of key war materials & men to the fighting fronts. Lt General Walter E. Todd, Assistant Chief of Operations, delivers a detailed analysis. Rather than going after major rail yards that were too big to put out of action in a short time, 43 smaller key locations were identified. Maps are supplemented by footage from aircraft taken during the missions. A fascinating time capsule showing the planning and implementation of late World War 2 air campaign strategy. Surviving 16mm copies of this film are faded & not very sharp. I have done what I can to digitally restore the images..
