The Unsung Heroes Of Pearl Harbour - Friday 7 December

NZ TV Premiere: The Unsung Heroes Of Pearl Harbour

History Channel – Friday 7 December, 8.30pm

No weapons program in U.S. history demanded more from the men who served it than the B-29 Superfortress. The giant, seemingly perfect planes appeared to devastate Japan with impunity at low cost. The true story was horrifying. B-29 crews suffered wholesale death in hurry-up testing programs, bombed at dead-low altitudes without guns in the face of suicide attacks, and suffered unspeakable torture as P.O.W.s. Includes a blow-by-blow account by Paul Tibbets who flew the Enola Gay to Hiroshima.
