American Bombings of Allied Cities in World War II

One of the mysteries of World War II was the senseless aerial destruction of Axis occupied cities by American bombers. These weren’t bomb strikes to support ground forces, but carpet-bombing raids on city centers. Several cities in Axis occupied China, Italy, Yugoslavia, and France were blasted by American mass bombings. These events are inexplicable and thus overlooked by historians.

Inexplicable and Overlooked by historians? Hardly. First, the video notes 2 reasons, starting at 7:57 – Bureaucratic competition among the various military arms, and a psychopathic culture that developed among air corps generals. Books, including those about WW1 and WW2, note the history of aerial bombardment of civilian targets and the idea that bombing civilian targets had psychological value at home and abroad, and would hamper the enemy’s ability to maintain civilian production to support their armed forces, as well as decreasing civilian political support for enemy regimes.

Thanks Carlton. That means the western allies knew what was to come after the war. The USA and the UK did not want large industrial assets to fall into Soviet control.

I can tell you that Gestapo, the SS and the SA did not have this opinion.

When I see the leaders of Europe today I automatically visualise them in Nazi uniforms.

Before The Third Reich many families spoke two or three languages.

As we see on the map we note “ethnic German” and that would mean the families had a German surname.

Your surname was important to the Nazi. If you “played along” they might leave you alone.

If you were a “deviant” you automatically became a Czech.

Of course the remnants remain in some parts of Europe.

Not only in the Baltics.

The Nazi ethic is useful for the “international community”, and several other players.
