Bombers Plaster Kassel: The 384th Bombardment Group (H) flew with the 303rd BG and 379th BG in wing formation on today's mission. Opposition stiffened as they neared the target, but they were able to drop their bombs on the primary target area. Flak over Kassel, and subsequent vigorous fighter attacks wounded several crew members and damaged many of the Group's aircraft, but all managed to return to England, although not all made it to Grafton Underwood that day.
