    I got through the read and am fascinated by it.
    Noteworthy to say that I didn´t knewed that german AAA was
    responsible for 30-50% of all heavy bomber losses over ETO.
    That´s painfully much.

    Well, bombers on all sides suffered high mortality rates. The study goes a long way to emphasize that. Those Luftstalags were filled with mostly bomber guys.....

    Certainly proved the "bomber will always get through" theory to be wrong.

    Very interesting kiwi.
