Hallo,zulufox hat geschrieben: ↑02.12.2010 11:21Hi Carsten,Delmenhorst hat geschrieben: I am working on a book about attacks on German shipping in the last two month of the war. The book will be divided up in two sections. One about Coastal Commands attack on German shipping and one about the Strategic Air Forces attacks on German harbours and other installations.
I became interested in an attack on Hemmingstedt during the night of 7/8th of March 1945. I can find very, very little information about the refinery and oil drilling and oil mines. Who can point me in the right direction ?
Thanks in advance
there was another attack on Hemmingstedt oil refinery 20th March 1945 8th Air Force mission 898 when 114 B-24 of 2nd Air Division dropped 308.00 tons.
