The destruction of the laboratories, work-shops and administrative complex represented a severe check to the enemy's advance in the field of rocket and pilotless airplane development; demolishing at a single blow his plans for a saturation onslaught calculated to destroy Britain's will to continue to fight.” - from the dj.

Bomber Command faced a herculean task in seeking to destroy this vile focus. The young men who died by the thousand over the Ruhr forges wrote their names in history and it is as well we should remember this fact. From the outset of the war the Ruhr was reckoned a most important target but to plan is one thing – to achieve success is another. When 1943 dawned it brought both the aircraft and the specialised radar equipment so necessary for the task, and in early March the Battle of the Ruhr began.” -from the dj.
