The invasion of Italy was in a different theater of Operations? Odd, I could have sworn that it was in the same theater. The 15th Air Force also was busy supporting the invasion of Southern France - Operation Anvil/Dragoon - I could swear that Southern France is bordered by the Med. You are familiar with the operational theater of World War II??? Or are you talking about the Eastern Front? Yes, most of these squadrons were called "fighter squadrons." They tended not to attack oil fields.., There were also transportation squadrons...But, they did not attack anything. There were also reconnaissance squadrons...They also attacked nothing. One of those Badasses So how is it then, when targets were bombed outside the wire of Auschwitz, prisoners were killed both inside and outside the wire of Auschwitz? Answer - WW2 bombing is not all that accurate, so the heavies bombed in formation to guarantee that at least some bombs would fall on the target. That is highly doubtful, even if using divebombers. Actually, they would not save any lives, only prolong said lives. I would think that attacking targets that would end the war sooner would be worth it. Ending the war sooner so as to put an end to the Holocaust was what those people deserved. Bombing Auschwitz will not end the Holocaust...Only defeating Germany would do that. Just for you I will then restate my last sentences...The words are simple, the sentences short, and the point is sharp. So, hopefully even you will understand. Bombing Auschwitz will not end the Holocaust. Only defeating Germany would do that.
