    Cheers Gunny ! I still have not been to Berlin, I really need to get off my A***E and start visiting these places !!
    You should mate, you can get a return flight with easyjet from Liverpool for about 60 if you book a few months in advance.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The truly sad thing is that while the armed forces "sowed the wind" the populace "reaped the whirlwind'"

    Yes, it doesn't bear thinking about. Obviously some of our cities took a beating also from the Luftwaffe, no need to mention them, but on a much smaller scale.

    No disrespect to our Bomber Command and/or Bomber Harris, they did a fantastic job, and did what they had to do, but I do feel sometimes that Dresden was a " City too Far " as it were. I believe the raid was conducted to prove to Stalin that we ( British ) could be ruthless and were committed to ending the war at all costs, not sure how true that is however
    Lets keep this on track , this isn't a discussion about Dresden or the policy of Bomber Command , many will take exception to these comments and you have posted them with the caveat that you don't even know if they are true !! After the recent WW1 Thread that had to be closed i'll warn everyone that if a discussion about Berlin cannot be conducted properly this time and gets out of hand then infractions will surely follow !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
