The men of the 100th Bomb Group played an integral role in defeating Hitler due to the extraordinary challenges they faced. These fighters were given the daunting task of fighting the war unusually. The pilots had to go on a battle with the enemies at 25,000 feet. The freezing temperatures, sparse oxygen, and inhumane distance from the ground made every small task difficult.

The Apple TV series will revolve around the emotional turmoil and the physical trauma that the soldiers had to suffer from. While they succeeded in destroying Hitler’s Third Reich, some did not survive the battle. Others who survived had to suffer from the trauma of the events. There were other unfortunate ones as well, who fell prey to the Nazis.
