STORY

Our Story

The 93rd Bomb Group was arguably the most decorated, most traveled and most effective bomb group of WWII. Helping to cripple Nazi-occupied Europe from the air, they executed some of the most daring bombing raids of the war. Along with the group's rich history, descendants travel to England and explore the 93rd's long forgotten air base - Hardwick.

The making of Return To Hardwick has truly been an independent endeavor.  The combination of a curious grandson of a World War II veteran and a legendary bomb group produced an energetic movie-making team to rival any Hollywood studio!  Financial backing for the film wasn't done over crowd-funding websites like Kickstarter or Indiegogo but instead, money was donated from veterans and family members who wanted to take the 93rd's story public.

Our Narrator

Screenings

During most of 2019, producing partners Frankenbite Productions and The 93rd Bomb Group Association took Return To Hardwick on the road.   The main focus was to theatrically screen the film at educational institutions like museums and also film festivals.  The opportunity to meet and talk with people that were either connected to the war in some way or just a history buff was a great experience.
