Who started the bombing civilians in World War II ?
Was it Hitler or Churchill? Most presume that it was Hitler’s Germany and have been conditioned to believe that, along with many other lies. Most also believe that England was bombed in the same manner and degree as Germany. They would be wrong. I hope you will find the following Slideshow and videos etc informative and useful. I have also included one of my previous interviews in which I described in detail some of the bombing operations against Germany.
NOTE: Hover your mouse over the Slideshow and you can pause it at any point to read the text. Feel free to share the images with the quotes on social media. I will make a video of this as time permits.

The fact is, Germany never developed long-range heavy bombers designed for this purpose, as the British and Americans did well in advance of the war. German bombers were much smaller and designed for tactical support of ground troops and tank warfare. If Hitler had really wanted a war and had planned to “take over the world” as we are told, do you not think he would have developed such planes? And if the US and Britain were really such champions of peace and so concerned with humanity, why were they always preparing for war and in such a way that they could do maximum damage to civilian populations?
Hitler in his own words (begins with a speech where he announces that Germany will finally respond to the British bombing)
The Bombing of Karlsruhe
My interview with Deanna Spingola from November 14, 2012. In the second hour I focused mainly on the bombings.
“Churchill said to the Germans in January, 1945, “We Allies are no monsters. This, at least, I can say, on behalf of the United Nations, to Germany … Peace, though based on unconditional surrender, will bring to Germany and Japan immense and immediate alleviation of suffering and agony.” (Austin App)
During the war, more bombs by weight were dropped on the city of Berlin than were released on the whole of Great Britain during the entire war.
All German towns and cities above 50,000 population were from 50% to 80% destroyed. Dresden, an unprotected city, was incinerated with an estimated 135,000 civilian inhabitants burned and buried in the ruins. Hamburg was totally destroyed and 70,000 civilians died in the most appalling circumstances whilst Cologne was likewise turned into a moon-scape. As Hamburg burned the winds feeding the three mile high flames reached twice hurricane speed to exceed 150 miles per hour. Trees three feet in diameter on the outskirts of the city, were sucked from the ground by the supernatural forces of these winds and hurled miles into the city-inferno, as were vehicles, men, women… and children.
Between 1940 and 1945, sixty-one German cities with a total population of 25 million souls were destroyed of devastated in a bombing campaign initiated by the British government. Destruction on this scale had no other purpose than the indiscriminate mass murder of as many German people as possible quite regardless of their civilian status. It led to retaliatory bombing resulting in 60,000 British dead and 86,000 injured.
The strafing of columns of refugees by both American and British fighter planes was par for the course: “…. it is said that these (zoo) animals and terrified groups of refugees were machine-gunned as they tried to escape across the Grosser Garten by low-flying planes and that many bodies riddled by bullets were found later in this park.” Der Tod von Dresden, Axel Rodenberger, February, 25th, 1951. In Dresden, “Even the huddled remnants of a children’s’ choir were machine-gunned in a street bordering a park.” David Irving, The Destruction of Dresden. “I think we shall live to rue the day we did this, and that it, (The bombing of Dresden) will stand for all time as a blot on our escutcheon.” Richard Stokes, M.P. “What we want to do in addition to the horrors of fire is to bring the masonry crashing down on the Boche, to kill Boche and to terrify Boche.” ‘Bomber’ Butch Harris, Sunday Times, January, 10th, 1993.
THE FIRESTORM OF HAMBURG
“Its horror is revealed in the howling and raging of the firestorms, the hellish noise of exploding bombs and the death cries of martyred human beings as well as the big silence after the raids. Speech is impotent to portray the measure of the horror, which shook the people for ten days and nights and the traces of which were written indelibly on the face of the city and its inhabitants.
No flight of imagination will ever succeed in measuring and describing the gruesome scenes of horror in the many buried air shelters. Posterity can only bow its head in honour of the fate of these innocents, sacrificed by the murderous lust of a sadistic enemy….”The Police President of Hamburg. ˆ “Three-hundred times as many people died in Hamburg during the ten-day blitz as died in Coventry during the entire course of the war. “Not even Hiroshima and Nagasaki, suffering the smashing blows of nuclear explosions, could match the utter hell of Hamburg.” Martin Caidin, The Night Hamburg Died, Ballantyne Books.
“Of the children these dreadful nights, what can be said? Their fright became horror and then panic when their tiny minds became capable of grasping the fact that their parents could no longer help them in their distress. They lost their reason and an overwhelming terror took over. Their world had become the shrieking centre of an erupting volcano from which there could be no physical escape. Nothing that hell offered could be feared more.
“By the hand of man they became creatures, human in form but not in mind. Strangled noises hissed from them as they staggered pitifully through the streets in which tar and asphalt ran as streams. Some of these tiny creatures ran several hundred feet. Others managed only twenty, maybe ten feet. Their shoes caught fire and then their feet. The lower parts of their legs became flickering sticks of flame. Here were Joans of Arcs…. thousands of them. All who had perished unjustly on the fires of the Middle Ages were as nothing when compared with what was happening that night.
“The sounds of many were unintelligible and undoubtedly many more called for their parents from whom they were parted by death or by accident. They grasped their tortured limbs, their tiny burning legs until they were no longer able to stand or run. And then they would crash to the ground where they would writhe in the bubbling tar until death released them from their physical misery.” Martin Caidin.
“The long suppressed story of the worst massacre in the history of the world. The devastation of Dresden in February, 1945, was one of those crimes against humanity whose authors would have been arraigned at Nuremberg if that court had not been perverted.” Rt. Hon. Richard.H.S Crossman, M.P., Labour Government Minister
AGAINST INTERNATIONAL LAW PHOSPHOROUS
“Men, women and children too, ran hysterically, falling and stumbling, getting up, tripping and falling again, rolling over and over. Most of them managed to regain their feet and made it to the water. But many of them never made it and were left behind, their feet drumming in blinding pain on the overheated pavements amidst the rubble, until there came one last convulsing shudder from the smoking ‘thing’ on the ground, and then no further movement.” Martin Caidin, The Night Hamburg Died. “Phosphorous burns were not infrequent.” U.S Strategic Bombing Survey. “Phosphorous was used because of its demonstrated ability to depress the morale of the Germans.” Official British source.
“Even the senseless and highly culture-destroying terror acts, against for example, Lubeck and Dresden, carried out by the Allied pilots, should have been investigated and brought before a proper court of justice.” Major General H. Bratt, Royal Swedish Army ˆ “A nation which spreads over another a sheet of inevitably deadly gases or eradicates entire cities from the earth by the explosion of atomic bombs, does not have the right to judge anyone for war crimes; it has already committed the greatest atrocity equal to no other atrocity; it has killed – amidst unspeakable torments – hundreds of thousands of innocent people.” Hon. Lydio Machado Bandeira de Mello, Professor of Criminal Law; author of more than 40 works on law/philosophy
“As for crimes against humanity, those governments which ordered the destruction of German cities, thereby destroying irreplaceable cultural values and making burning torches out of women and children, should also have stood before the bar of justice.” (Hon Jaan Lattik. Estonian statesman, diplomat and historian.)
