NOVEMBER 29th 1944 First B-29 Raids On Japan

B-29 Bombing of Japan

On November 29th, 1944 the United States began bombing or Japan from the Mariana Islands using B-29 bombers.  The B-29 called Superfortress.  The Japanese did not have fighter aircraft that could engage the B-29’s and thus they were unable to defend against the attacks.  The raids began slow but rapidly grew in size and by the end of the war had destroyed a large percent of the Japanese industrial capabilities.
