Summary
This film documents how American workers fulfilled Roosevelt's promise to produce 200 B-29 Superfortress bombers, or "Superforts," by March 1944. Viewers see footage of Boeing factory production; workers constructing air strips in China; B-29s arriving in China; and their debut attack on Yawata that signaled the start of the Japanese blitz. Note: this historical recording may contain variations in audio and visual quality based on the variations of the original source material
