I may be misremembering. Although he did tell me a funny story about how the bombs on the aircraft were so heavy they couldn't actually gain sufficient altitude when crossing the Channel. They'd have to cross, then come back and cross again to gain altitude.
I'm pretty sure he said bullets. Possibly from other planes, possibly from riflemen on the ground (iirc planes flew so low and slow shooting them from the ground was possible). Regardless, the man was covered in scars.
That's why Hitler has lost the war. For being an idiot. He could've just built "National Republic of Poland" (like the Soviets did), form "National Polish Army" (like the Soviets did) and use it alongside other Slav troops to conquer Moscow (like the Soviets did with Berlin). And knowing about his Parkinson, Hitler would probably die ca. 1953... and the rest is known. Poland would regain independence in 1989, but several thousand times more developed and organised.
Besides, if Hitler didn't waste his resources on Holocaust and just shipped all the Jews to Madagascar, and then took out a loan against pledge in form of his Jewish colony from the Western Europe to focus his actions on the USSR exclusively (instead of fighting with entire civilised Europe like a fucking moron), he could've won this shit. And then establish a bunch of satellite states to cover all of the conquered territory (Soviet style). It wouldn't make a difference for us Easterners knowing the nazi occupation wasn't any different from the ruskie one.
Chill, mate. Hungary is (and always was) our greatest ally (since at least the Jagiellonian era). Good thing you're shit at modern history, or else you could use 1956 argument against me - and I always could blame People's govt of a no longer existing communist country. So blame nazi govt of a no longer existing fascist Hungary I guess.
Wartime stories, huh? My grandfather (on the side of a father) has served in the Polish Home Army (Armia Krajowa), was wounded during the storm on Bug river (our eastern border at the moment) and persecuted by the Soviets after the war (Home Army, as appointed to the government in exile, was declared an enemy of the newly formed communist state). While my great grand father (on the side of the mother) was conscripted by the Soviets to a forming People's Army, was badly wounded during an operation during Warsaw Uprising, was transported and then hospitalized in Moscow, returned home two years later. You filthy nazi collaborator.
Nah, I think he mainly bombed targets just across the Channel. And wow, that is lucky. My grandfather managed to survive being shot on 11 occasions. A total of 22 bullets dug out of his body over the course of the war.
