Dear Mr. Taliaferro,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located a series titled World War II Combat Operations Reports, 1941-1946 in the Records of the Army Air Forces (Record Group 18) that included 12 file units of the 332nd Fighter Group for February to June 1944 and February to June 1945. For access to these reports, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the historical and operational records of the 332nd Fighter Group have been microfilmed by the Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA). The National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) has a copy of the microfilm. For access to the microfilm, please use the index to the Air Force History microfilm available at http://www.airforcehistoryindex.org/
To use the index, please enter GROUP/0332/FIGHTER in the search window and narrow your search by including 12/7/1941 in the Start Date and 12/31/1945 in the End Date before clicking the Search button. The results should be 26 records. Read the brief Abstract to determine which records you are interested in and click on the specific PDF icon. In the PDF listing, the IRISREF is the microfilm reel number and note the FRAME and FRAMELST numbers for the location on the reel. If the reel number begins with A, B or C, please contact RDT2 via email at email@example.com for access to them. If the reel number begins with D - Z, the microfilm is still security classified and RDT2 will not be able to make the reel available to you. The original paper copy from which the film was created is still in the custody of the Air Force Historical Research Agency (AFHRA) and has been declassified. For access to these records, please contact AFHRA, 600 Chennault Circle, Building 1405, Maxwell Air Force Base, AL 36112-6424. The web site is https://www.afhra.af.mil/.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
