Cover: The Fort and the Sky and the Flak Over Emden – makes a very pretty picture for the camera in this one of the few actual “burst” ever taken, and a very unpretty picture for the Axis as the air offensive grows rapidly stronger.

Articles Inside: 66 Days Missing in Action – This is the story of nine men from the Flying Fortress “My Lovin’ Dove,” who disappeared into the Jap-held Pacific and were officially listed for two months as “missing in action under circumstances presuming death.” They tell here how they eluded the Japs, how they discovered a Navy flyer who had been missing six months, and how six of them were saved in one of the most dangerous rescue missions of the Pacific campaign. by Sgt. Mack Morriss
