Secret Nazi tapes reveal how ordinary German soldiers were responsible for war crimes and not just SS
September 22, 2012
Secret recordings made by British intelligence during the Second World War have revealed for the first time the horrific atrocities carried out by everyday German soldiers.
One example of many recounts: ‘There was an event in the market square, crowds of people, speeches given. We really sprayed them! That was fun!’
Another reveals the following conversation: ‘We once did a strafing near Eastbourne. We flew up and saw a big castle; there seemed to be a ball or something – anyhow a lot of ladies in evening dress and a band.
‘The first time we flew past; then we attacked and kept at it. Boy oh boy, was that fun.’
Another reveals: ‘I loved dropping bombs. It makes you feel all tingly, a great feeling. It’s as good as shooting someone down.’
