Glenn Miller

Definition: The mysterious death of band leader Glenn Miller.

 

When the popular American jazz musician and bandleader vanished en-route from England to France to play for troops in recently liberated Paris, few people knew about it at the time due because it happened the same day the Germans launched their last major offensive against the allies in what would be known as the Battle of the Bulge. The fate of the single-engine Norseman over the English Channel 10 days before Christmas has never been explained, and no trace of Miller or the plane has ever been found. There is speculation that it was shot down by a German fighter, or that it was hit by ordnance dropped from British bombers on their way back from a canceled mission. (At the time, bombers couldn't return with unexploded ordnance on board and were required to jettison their bombs - preferably over the ocean - before they could land.) Whatever the case, Miller's death was a huge loss to the American musical scene.
