Lt. Lee Zimmerman 8th Air Force

Listen as Lee tells of his B-17 bombing missions over Germany and other European locations.  Lee was shot down over Germany and held as a POW in Stalag Luft 1 in Barth Germany.  Lee tells what it is like to come under Anti-Aircraft fire by large caliber artillery from the ground and after that the fear that the dreaded Messerschmidt ME 109 or other German fighters that would pick off any bombers that had to leave the protection of the formation.
