Amiable incendiary clusters--about 300 plane raid formation. Broke up as we crossed coast -- heavy clouds. 3 planes tagged on another formation-- dropped bombs at 27,000. Flak heavy as hell but not accurate -- very good evasive flying. Got hit by flak at 19,500 ft. at coast very accurate, but didn't get hit. Had P51 and P38 escort. Mission was bastard, 159 planes supposed to bomb Munich, only 35 went over, 29 from our bomb group. Target probably hit. Temp.- -40 degrees below F.
