Operation Gomorrah

I didn’t know that the RAF and American planes bombed Hamburg, Germany on July 24, 1943. Firestorms from the bombing left at least 40,000 dead in the first three days. American B-17 Fortresses flew 252 daylight sorties in the two days following the first of four RAF night raids. Sir Arthur Harris directed four major raids against Hamburg in the space of ten nights, known as “Operation Gomorrah”.
