My post on the C-47 below generated some email, including these pictures:
Resupply of Bastogne, December, 1944.
Restored C-47 at airshow.
C-47s towing WACO CG-4A gliders.
Another view of C-47s towing on single ropes (they could pull up to four with VERY careful piloting in all craft.
Walter Cronkite, who went into Holland in a glider with the 101st ABN, described the experience as a "life-long cure for constipation."
How the C-47 would fly in and snatch a glider off the ground to bring wounded and special personnel out of a combat zone.
As part of my research for Absolved, I did a lot of research on glider warfare, including interviews with former glider pilots and glider infantry. I have a copy of the original Army Air Corps training film for snatch operations. It is narrated by a young Ronald Reagan.
