Mission Date 25 July 1944
384th Mission Number
 
165
8th Air Force Mission Number 494
Mission Comments Support For Imminent Attack
The 384th Bombardment Group (H) provided all three groups of the 41st B Combat Bombardment Wing on today's mission. The primary targets were troop and artillery concentrations ahead of an attack planned for moments after the bombing. The lead (Montreuil) and low (La Chapelle en Juger) groups attacked their assigned aim points successfully, but the high group held their bomb because their target (Le Chatel) was obscured by previous wings' bomb blasts.
