Re: Fascinating but.....
The carpet bombing of German cities was only done after the RAF had tried daylight bombing of military targets and suffered heavy casualties .
They switched to night bombing to reduce their losses ,but night bombing without any radar or any other aid early in war was a
very hit and miss appair. Mainly miss , with only about 5% of bombs getting within 5 miles of the target.
Carpet bombing did not start until 1942 when Bomber Command had built up sufficient numbers to acheive some success.
The bombing of civilian targets by the Germans was mainly in 1940 and 1941.
They did try to create a Fire Storm in London on one raid but failed as the second wave was cancelled due to bad weather.
Bombing was the only way of taking the war to the Germans, until the Invasion in June 1944.
It is just as well for the post war generations that the Germans did not win , as they would have treated you like the other enslaved people of Europe.
PS. madra, perhaps you should read up on WW2, you are a bit uninformed at the moment.
