Recently declassified documents close the book on the mysterious death of Capt. Glenn Miller. Sadly he and others on his cross-channel flight were the victims of friendly fire. This was apparently thought to be too much to place on the conscience of anyone who might have been involved, so it was kept from the public all these years.
