AIR TRANSPORT COMMAND (3849 words)
ATC transports were used primarily to carry "high value" items of cargo such as aircraft parts and other material that was too crucial to spend long periods in the cargo holds of ships traversing the U-boat infested waters of the Atlantic and other oceans.
While the route kept the transports relatively free from enemy attack, it led over terrain that was higher than any in the United States in a region that was characterized by violent storms, with snow and ice in the higher altitudes at which the transports had to fly to cross the mountains.
In the spring of 1944 the Allies invaded Burma from the air.
