A descriptive overview of the process of the ''Carpetbaggers,'' being the 492nd Bombardment Group and the European Air Transport Command, a strategic collaboration between the USAAF and the RAF during the World War II from October 1943 to May 1945, tasked with delivering espionage agents and vital supplies for the underground, propaganda leaflet drops, and retrieving interned airmen from neutral Sweden. They worked with direction from the OSS and typically flew B-24's and C-47's, taking off from various RAF airfields throughout the UK, and conducting operations over France, Norway and Sweden. They flew missions for, notably, the SONNIE, BALL, WHEN AND WHERE, and SPEEDY Projects.
