World War II – The Americans in Sudbury 1944/45

I have gathered the images and textual material for this website from a very wide range of sources. I am extremely grateful to all those who helped and I am particularly appreciative of the permission given by the 486th Bomb Group Association to use some of its copyright material.

Memories fade and can become distorted with the passage of years. There are bound to be some factual errors and also, perhaps, some disagreement with my interpretation of events. Both are inevitable in any piece of historical research. Please feel free to contact me.
