Vol. 3 No. 6 ……. Cover: Shuttle-Bombing Between the U.K. and Russia – See pages 2, 3 and 4 ……. Articles Inside: … One Mission — Five Targets – When the Forts and the Mustangs went into the sky on a memorable morning in England recently, they proved that there was no place in Germany or German-occupied Europe that they couldn’t go. And on this particular day, they started out on a mission that had as stopping places Russia, Italy and then back home again. It was a single mission with a single purpose, but besides the military aspect of the operation, it brought together the fighting people of the Allied nations as few other single ventures have done. By Pvt. Howard Katzander ….. Sniper Exterminator – This is a story about T/Sgt. Kwiatek whose main interest in life is killing Germans. Three reasons are responsible for this: two brothers and an unreasoning hatred of Nazis. To date, Kwiatek has notched up 22 enemy snipers to his credit, but he still has a long way to go, he says.
