A newcomer to this forum. Have a question.
What Luftwaffe Kampfgeschwader (Bomber Groups) participated in the December 1943 raid on the Allied harbor facilities and ships at Bari, Italy?
Many thanks in advance,

DISASTER AT BARI, by Infield, Glenn; Macmillan, 1971, seems to be the main reference book though I have not seen it
From the date of the raid and the forces available to the Luftwaffe in Italy in December 1943 I would suggest that the aircraft were mainly from I and II gruppen of KG 76 based at Aviano and possibly a few from LGI.
