Walter M. Miller Jr. B-25 Help
Posted by FastasEF on Thursday, April 26, 2018 12:32 PM

Hey all,

   I was wondering if anyone knew of where, or could tell me specifically, what B-25's Walter M. Miller Jr. might have flown on during WWII? I'm reading his book "A Canticle for Leibowitz" and had no idea that he was involved in the bombing of Benedictine Abbey at Monte Cassino. History like this interests me and I'd like to build a model of one that he had flown in.

Well I suppose if you know or could find out which Bomb Group and Squadron that he was assigned to that would narrow it down some.

Have you had a look at this site?

Didnt Joseph Heller of “Catch 22” fame fly with that group as well?
