Military History

We are seeking short, historical essays of American military in action during World War II. We are particularly interested in amphibious landings, strategic bombing missions, medium and light bomber interdictions, aerial dogfights, tank and ground battles, and naval engagements. If you have a story to tell or have interviewed a World War II veteran and wish to share their story with our readership, please contact the editor at raven@histoyraven.com.  Essay range: from a minimum of 550 to a maximum of 850 words, must be documented, and may include photographs. Pay $50/mss on publication; $10 per photograph. Query first before sending complete manuscript with photographs. Byline given.

Read more about Light Attack bombers and an amazing story about the fatal 23 Jan 1949 mission of the 409th Light Bomb Group.  

 

Also, see www.ragtag409.wordpress.com for more on the 409th up close.
