This history of the 5th Bomb Group was printed and published at the request of Lt. Col. A. W. James and Major Henry Gregory, commanding officer and executive officer, respectively, of the 5th Group at the time of its de-activation. They felt that some printed record of the efforts of the organization was desirable, inasmuch as the group had a continuously brilliant combat record, which was due to the high technical proficiency of its personnel and unsurpassed esprit de corps when the going was rough.
