I just read the brief information under the Dessau mission on May 28th, where the group was attacked by numerous fighters. Is there anywhere I can read more about this mission?

I wrote an extensive account of this mission and published it, titled: "Mission 376, battle over the Reich: 28 May 1944". It is easily available through and you can read more about the book at
In the book there is a large chapter dedicated to the Dessau battle, and there is much information including photos on the 401st BG crews that were lost.
Hope this helps,
Kind regards,
