MASSIVE bombing raids by Allied forces during World War II sent shockwaves to the edge of space, according to new research. Scientists at the University of Reading in the UK have revealed that shockwaves from huge bombs travelled through the Earth’s atmosphere. The bombing even weakened the Earth’s electrified upper atmosphere, the ionosphere, 1000 kilometres away.
DEATH OF A CITY by historian Michael Walsh discloses dreadful accounts of what it was like to live and perish in an RAF firestorm. This information has been hidden from the public since Britain’s unelected war lord Winston Churchill rejected numerous German peace offers.
Michael Walsh says, victors’ spin claims the bombing campaign was initiated by the German side. However, J. M. Spaight, Principal Secretary to the Air Ministry disagrees: “Hitler only undertook the bombing of British civilian targets reluctantly three months after the RAF had commenced bombing German civilian targets.”
Another myth used to justify total destruction of great German cities was retaliation for their bombing of Coventry. By the morning of August 3, 1943, over 6,000 square acres of Hamburg had been gutted compared to just 100 acres in Coventry over the entire course of the war, a city essential to Churchill’s war campaign.
During just 10 days 100,000 citizens of Hamburg were put to the flame. For every one of the 380 persons who died in Coventry, again during the entire course of the war, no less than 300 Hamburg citizens died during that satanic week of senseless Allied carpet bombing.
Many are the accounts of the RAF bombing campaigns from the Allied perpetrators anaesthetised by time and distance. But, what was it like to be in Hamburg during the RAF raids?
An official German document states: “For weeks afterwards eyewitnesses were unable to report without succumbing to their nerves and weeping hysterically. They would try to speak, then would break down and cry: ‘I can’t stand seeing it again; I can’t stand it.”
Many weeks later, a woman who did survive was interviewed. She had still not recovered from the experience: “I saw people killed by falling bricks and heard the screams of others dying in the fire. I dragged my best friend from a burning building and she died in my arms. I saw others who went stark mad. The shock to the nerves and the soul, one can never erase.”
The Police President of Hamburg reported: “Its horror is revealed in the howling and raging of the firestorms, the hellish noise of exploding bombs and the death cries of martyred human beings as well as the big silence after the raids. Speech is impotent to portray the measure of the horror, which shook the people for ten days and nights and the traces of which were written indelibly on the face of the city and its inhabitants.
“No flight of imagination will ever succeed in measuring and describing the gruesome scenes of horror in the many buried air raid shelters. Posterity can only bow its head in honour of the fate of these innocents, sacrificed by the murderous lust of a sadistic enemy.”
Martin Caidin is one of the world’s leading authorities on military science subjects. The high-ranking U.S. Government official was an expert on bombing effects. He described the bombing of Hamburg as: “Standing out as the worst of the disasters visited upon civilisation during the insanity of the Second World War.”
The air above Hamburg was the pure flame. Six square miles of Hamburg was engulfed in the world’s greatest fire. Merely looking at the blinding heat and light could terrorise and destroy the mind. There were no longer individual blazes.
The winds relentlessly fed the flames and were sucked in at higher and higher speeds. Even out in the suburbs, it was like no ordinary wind. Such winds as we all experience each day of our lives swirl in eddies and gusts. They blow this way at one corner and another way at the next corner. But these winds showed no variation in direction or speed. The winds flowed into the city at a constant speed. During the early stages, these winds had reached forty and then fifty miles per hour.
Ninety minutes after the first bombs were dropped trees on the outskirts of the city were beginning to lose their leaves. It was as though some giant supernatural vacuum cleaner was plucking them. Small branches were snapped and street debris was vacuumed up as though by some unseen hand. The rubbish swirled away and bounced off the shells of buildings but always sucked in one direction.
Outside the city’s perimeter, tens of thousands of people gathered to witness that which no man had witnessed before them. A whole city had become a throbbing inferno of intense heat. Stunned onlookers gazed with their eyes transfixed as a column of flame a mile wide reached the inner limits of space.
The winds reached supernatural speeds and they were to soon exceed tornado or hurricane velocities. The shrieking gales flattened flames. The tornadoes turned the city into one gigantic flame thrower or blow torch. Flames, many hundreds of feet long, were caught in the blast of wind. It seared through streets where thousands of people still huddled in the open as they hid behind partly demolished walls, cowering in alleys. These unfortunates were incinerated.
The martyr’s shrieks of terror and pain mingled and were lost in the screaming winds and crackling firestorm. It will never be known how many such people simply disappeared as though they had never walked the earth. Not even a few charred bones marked their presence on earth. It is estimated that winds feeding the blazing city reached speeds as high as 150 miles per hour and perhaps more. Twice that of hurricane force winds and at such speeds, some trees three feet in diameter, were sucked out of the ground and hurled into the flames.
During the RAF’s firestorm of Hamburg, temperatures reached 1,400 degrees Fahrenheit. At such temperatures, lead becomes a bubbling fluid as liquid as water. Balks of wood simply explode without necessarily coming in contact with flame; metal, rubber, and glass melts.
Flames were hurled three miles into the sky and its gases reached as high again and more. It was a sight so spectacular and horrifying that the well-known effect of an atom-bomb explosion becomes relatively lesser. As the fire’s superheated gases boiled upwards, they passed through a stratum of cold air high above the city. The debris in the soaring flames and smoke attracted moisture and caused a meteorological reaction. The natural elements combined to reject the debris which was transformed and fell to the earth once more in big greasy black rain blobs.
This again raises the question, were the Allied atrocities committed during World War II so horrifyingly unique in world history that the myth of the Holocaust was invented for the Allies to hide their crimes behind.
