- World War II
Heroes of the night
In August 1943, a highly classified US Army Air Force unit, code-named the “Wright Project,” departed Langley Field for Guadalcanal in the South Pacific to join the fight against the Empire of Japan. The Wright airmen would fly only at night, usually as lone hunters of enemy ships. In so doing they would pave the way for the United States to enter and dominate a new dimension of war in the air for generations to come.
Nightstalkers is their story, from humble beginnings at MIT’s Radiation Lab to the Pacific War and their two-year march toward Tokyo. Comprehensive and highly personal, this important story can now be revealed for the very first time, based on official sources, and interviews with the young men who flew into the night.
