    The bombardment of civil towns was one of the ugliest sides of the war, all the same, whether Coventry, London, Duisburg or Dresden.

    Nice comprehensive collection of paperwork. Would have been tragic for it to be split up. Were former BDM more likely to be helferin/Blitzmädels? Or was it all women?
