TROLLEY MISSION 1945

Aerial Pictures and Photographs of Germany at the end of World War II


Bookstore

Because it is an academic work and research in Germany, publications are written in the German language, unfortunately. Markus Lenz is still working on new publications in the English language. But it takes a lot of time. Note, after 70 years it's very difficult to find people who can give information about the Trolley Mission. And, for a German author, it's even more difficult to understand relationships and infrastructure of the United States Air Force in 1945. But so far, there are some English books available on bookstores.

Post Hostilities Aerial Mapping:
Iceland, Europe and North Africa from June 1945 to December 1946


Germany's surrender meant that World War II was over in Europe and no further bombing missions would be flown there. Rumors were rife and one started floating that the 305th and 306th Bombardment Groups would not accompany the Eighth Air Force to the war in the Pacific. Instead, these two units, with the greatest amount of service in the European theater, would be detailed to a new mission for preparing the Cold War: Photographic mapping of the continent of Europe, North Africa and Iceland. This rumor was confirmed on a morning early in June 1945. The group commanders briefed their men on the new mission, nicknamed "Project Casey Jones".
