The Douglas A-20 Havocs were the main attack bomber of the Army Air Corps when America entered the war. It was an extremely popular aircraft and ultimately flew combat missions in all theatres of the war and in the colors and markings of many of the Allied nations. Many of these sleek aircraft prowled in the North African battlegrounds of Tunisia with French crews from Squadron 15 out of Youks-les-Bains. In 1942 the U.S Army Corps 47th Bomb Group arrived from the States with Douglas A-20 Havocs and took over the 15th remaining battered DB-7 Boston's. From then on the 47th flew support for the U.S. II Corps and hit German targets mainly in central Tunisia, Sfax, Gabes, and along the Mareth Line. By April of 1943 Rommel was hemmed in around Tunis. It was a target rich environment for the A20 pilots. World War II Aircraft in Combat, by Glenn B Bavousett
