RAF & USAAF Joint Task Force Capture Of German Air Ministry Staff: Germany, 1945, Post-VE Day

Post by Richard Stone » 11 Oct 2023 08:59

The attached article discusses how a joint RAF and USAAF task force located and captured the staff and many of the records of the German Air Ministry several weeks after VE Day.

The original article was a British report that was printed in the January 1946 issue of the 'Royal Air Force Journal’.

This copy of the article was printed in the April 1947 edition of the USA professional military reference magazine ‘Military Review’.

I posted this article in the site section ‘WW2 in the Western Europe & the Atlantic'. I’ve reposted it here to aid researchers of the Luftwaffe.

"... experimenting on atom splitting." Yes, of course. The story of the "Last Redoubt" has yet to be fully told, among other things.
