Air Operatrions on this date:

1943: While the people of Berlin celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Hitlers seizure of power, british bombers make a bombing raid on the capital using Mosquitos.
(hmm, not the accurate word. It gets other meaning when I translate, than what it has in my book. Maybe "mark" instead?)

1944: American bombers attack Hannover and Braunschweig.
Night to the 30th german bombers attack London and other targets in Southern England.

PS: I get Paulus' surrender to first happen on the 31th, after being promoted to field marshall a couple of days before. Sorry for nitpicking Donster

Snefens,

No worries about nitpicking! I got the date from a couple different sources. But then I got to thinking, maybe it was the 30th in the USA, and had already become the 31st in Russia? Who knows? I'm not gonna worry about it. Thanks for adding your info, I think everyone is enjoying it.
