I disagree so strongly with this point that it wounds me deep in the soul. I feel offended... you have disgraced my name, mocked my mother and trodden on my political beliefs.

See you in court.

The RAF heavy bombers dropped more tons of bombs than the USAAF.

Halifax and Lancaster won the war.

But the question is not how many tons but where they were dropped and what they destroyed. If it were the case that only tonnage was at issue Vietnam would be the 51st U.S. State.

Planes won the war. How about that statement? At least that keeps most of us in agreement.

Im thinking that the Infantry won the war planes can bomb all they want but they dont take any ground. Where as the guys in the foxholes can take ground and watch out for the airforce dropping ordinance on the wrong side of the battlelines

If bombers were used well enough they could kill everyone living in an area. Effectively taking that ground, or at least destroying its inhabitants. Mass murder effectively.

Sorry lads but its true - the bombers did win the war. The greatest flaw of the LW was its lack of heavy strategic bombers. The initial focus on tactical bombers like the He-111 and the Ju-87 was based on the belief that by supporting the infantry the battle could be won; which was true in the battlefield based campaigns of the past where your civilian population and war production remained largely untouched. When the allies began pounding the **** out of the German factories & factory workers the war was lost. In fact the LW failure to maintain superiority of the air has more to do with fuel & material shortages than with losses due to direct air-to-air combat.

No, the C-46 did. The C-47 just had a better Public Affairs Officer.
