The Blitz on Hamburg

The Blitz on Hamburg,

Hamburg was bombed in July 1943. According to Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister for Propaganda, the bombing of Hamburg was the first time that he thought Nazi Germany might have to call for peace.

The bombing of German cities, spearheaded by ‘Bomber Harris’ and the men from Bomber Command, remains a controversial topic and the bombing of Dresden in 1945 is frequently recounted. However, the bombing of Hamburg brought utter destruction to the city and regardless of what happened to the city itself, it did a great deal to hearten people in Britain who had seen London and many other cities attacked and bombed with the resulting casualties.
