    Good aerial shots of Genoa being bombed by the RAF, seen from a Lancaster bomber at night.

  • Description

    Titles read: "GENOA BLITZED BY RAF".

    Somewhere in England and Genoa, Italy.

    C/U of a map of Italy and surrounding countries.

    Night shots of RAF Lancaster bombers taking off for a raid.

    Several very good aerial shots taken from bomb aimer's view in a bomber. First of all flares light the night sky and make the targets easy to see. Sticks of bombs follow and land right on target. Normal and slow motion shots show the raid in detail.
