I've been visiting this excellent board for quit a while now, and I must say it has given me alot of information about WWII. I very much enjoy reading the discussions on this board but have never participated before, so this is my first post.
Anyway I was reading Ribbentrop's sentence from Nurenberg and I find the following paragraph weird
source: http://www.yale.edu/lawweb/avalon/imt/proc/judribb.htm"Ribbentrop participated in a meeting of 6th June, 1944, at which it was agreed to start a programme under which Allied aviators carrying out machine gun attacks on the civilian population should be lynched"
So were these attacks on civilians ever carried out by the Allies. If they were it seems a bit odd to partly sentence a man for crimes against humanity on these accusations. Surely it must have been a war crime itself to carry out machine gun attacks on civilians.
