Title

Eine Botschaft des Oberbefehlshabers der britischen Kampfflugzeuge an das deutsche Volk

Description

Air Marshal Arthur Harris, Commander-in-Chief of Bomber Command, sends a message to the German people. He describes the reversal of roles: Germany is now experiencing what British cities have experienced. The RAF is conducting an extensive campaign at all times on German cities to stop the war. Supplies of aircraft have increased substantially with huge production in the United States. The focus is on military targets but collateral civilian casualties have occurred in Britain and Germany. British aircraft losses are less than 5%. The first American squadrons have arrived in Britain and they are producing planes in Detroit which can drop 4 tons of bombs on German cities. To end the war, the Germans need to overthrow the Nazis. They will make it impossible for Germany ever to start another war.
