It's that creepy 'coincidence-thingie' all over again! Yes indeed, no sooner had I bade a fond farewell to the Vulcan bomber (see below) than another tricky bombing question went off in the columns of The American Thinker. The question is simple but deadly - why didn't we bomb the Nazi death camps? According to the writer, Michael Curtis, we knew all about them from late 1942. Of course, bombing them would have entailed killing inmates as well as gaolers. Others have suggested that bombing the rail lines would have helped not least in cutting down the supply of fresh inmates!
However, a commenter claims that only 5% of bombs dropped by the USAAF and the RAF actually landed within 5 miles of the target so the inference is that raids would probably have missed. Even so, I would suggest - diffidently because I lack expertise - that the Mosquito bomber, famous for its pinpoint accuracy, could have been deployed against death camps in western Germany like Belsen.
Anyway, no effort was made and the camps went on pumping their noxious smoke from their chimneys almost to the very end.
