With all the colossal blunders made by the German army, it's amazing that they got as far as they did. Then again, we barely won that war, so it's scary to think what could have happened without mistakes like this on the part of the Germans.

It's easy for Americans to overlook what an intense battle this was. I mean, imagine if there were aerial combat and massive bombings in DC?

This was an excellent article. I did not realize that Germany changed the focus of its air raids after Britain attacked Berlin. Strong proof that steely and steady leadership wins the day! Please keep up the absolutely excellent work you are producing!
