A year later he was sailing for Britain as commander of an entire fighter group --- the first group trained on the P-47 Thunderbolt to enter a theater of war.Assigned to escort bombers of the Eighth Air Force, the 56th Fighter Group took to the skies, battling foul weather, their own inexperience --- and heavy concentrations of German fighters. They engaged the Messerschmitt 109s and Focke Wulf 190 fighters in hair-raising dogfights, and gradually began to achieve the success that would seal their fame.Mission by mission, Zemke and his Wolf Pack developed tactics that set the pace for the whole fighter campaign.An inspired and intrepid leader of many of the wars most celebrated fighter pilots, Hub Zemke was an ace himself, downing at least 19 German planes and ground strafing numerous aircraft and locomotives.

When his aircraft disintegrated in a storm over Germany in late 1944, he was taken prisoner and entered a whole new arena of war.
