Lt. Col. James C. Warren recalls a very important event in the history of the 332nd Fighter Group through research and conversations with TSGT. George Watson. The Great Train Robbery recalls how the 332nd FG was given one of their most important missions of the war; escorting Allied bombers to Berlin. But they were faced with the dilemma of not having the proper equipment to complete the mission. The Great Train Robbery describes how members of the 332nd FG analyzed, developed, and executed a bold and dangerous plot to acquire the needed equipment crucial to their mission. They knew all too well if they could not complete their mission, it would be a black mark on the unit and Black soldiers overall. Lt. Col. Warren’s account of their actions on the ground and in the air excitingly exemplifies the ingenuity, daring, and skillfulness of the 332nd Fighter Group’s impact in defeating Germany.

Cpt. James C. Warren Jr. USAR (Ret.)
