On March 6, 1944, fire and smoke seared the skies above northern Germany. When the heavens cleared, the U.S. 8th Air Force was revealed to have suffered the worst single day of air warfare of World War II; German forces had destroyed 69 U.S. heavy bombers and 11 escort fighters. In return, 81 Luftwaffe fighters were downed. But air warfare was not about numbers: it was about the bold acts of individuals who risked their lives daily and "The Hunter Becomes the Hunted" conveys one of those decisive acts of courage.

Countersigners: Oberleutnant Wolfgang Kretschmer, 1st Lieutenant Robert Shoens, Technical Sgt. Harold Stearns and Colonel Hub Zemke.
