England bombed civilian populations in WWII. The US bombed Germany's civilian population in 1945 with the approval of Dwight D. Eisenhower. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Interesting that you don't mention the Blitz, V1s, V2s.
@goaded Interesting that you don't mention Germany only bombed military targets after England bombed civilian targets in Germany.www.worldfuturefund.org/.../Bombing.htmwww.spectator.co.uk/.../
Rather, bombed civilian targets after England bombed civilian targets.
Bollocks."Strategic bombing during World War II began on 1 September 1939 when Germany invaded Poland and the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) began bombing cities and the civilian population in Poland in an indiscriminate aerial bombardment campaign. As the war continued to expand, bombing by both the Axis and the Allies increased significantly. The Royal Air Force began bombing military targets in Germany, such as docks and shipyards, in March 1940. In September 1940, the Luftwaffe began targeting British cities in the Blitz. After the beginning of Operation Barbarossa in June 1941, the Luftwaffe attacked Soviet cities and infrastructure. From 1942 onward, the British bombing campaign against Germany became less restrictive and increasingly targeted industrial sites and eventually, civilian areas."en.wikipedia.org/.../Strategic_bombing_during_World_War_II
@goaded You do know that the reason Germany went into Poland was to stop the ethnic cleansing of Germans there right? England had no claim to Poland other than that it was allies with the Bolsheviks. And you even admit that it's not England that was bombed. English military installations were bombed until England decided to bomb Germany's civilians.I bet you didn't even read the information in the links I provided. And Wikipedia is not without incorrect historical information, that's why it can be edited. .
So, I was right in my suspicion. There's a hint of truth in what you say, but your dates don't match up, quite common in propaganda.England never asserted a claim on Poland, they had an alliance to defend it. There was no ethnic cleansing going on in Poland before the war, it happened after the war, and there was this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloody_Sunday_(1939) that happened during the invasion, not before. Show me a contemporary report of bad treatment of Germans in Poland, and I might reconsider.From the Spectator link:"In a fascinating chapter entitled ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ Overy suggests that Britain’s Bomber Command developed its tactics for concentrated ‘area bombing’ and the wide use of incendiary bombs by observing the destruction Germany wrought on London during the Blitz." Cause and effect. The May 1940 decision was to start to allow bombing where civilians might be affected, well after the invasion of Poland.From your other link:"By and large, the British pursued this [Precision or Pinpoint Bombing] in 1940 and 1941. It was abandoned by the RAF in favor of city-killing, area bombing in February 1942. The US followed suit in December 1943..."The London Blitz started in September 1940.
