    just curious, when was the last noted time the luftwaffe bombed britian? i know buzz bombs and v2s were still constant until after the allies pushed into germany itself. i am speaking strictly bombers. there was a point where germany went to a total defensive posture covering 3 fronts and keeping a large contingent of ac to intercept bombers striking targets within the reich. hense, i would imagine they gave up sending bombers to the isles. is there a known date?

    It would probably be Unternehmen Steinbock.

    thanks, max... seems that was a total waste of airmen and planes that might have helped elsewhere.

    Can't remember the exact date off-hand but I think I posted it in the "This Day In Europe..." thread awhile back. You may have to search over the last 6 months.
