Series: Spiritual Lessons from WW2
Study: 77: The V-Bombs of Antwerp
This is the seventy-seventh installment in Eric’s series entitled Spiritual Lessons from WW2. In this episode he examines the “vengeance” tactics of the Hitler on the city of Antwerp in the late fall months of 1944. It seemed like overnight in September of 1944 Antwerp, Belgium became the most critical piece of ground on earth. And both the Axis and the Allies were fighting to gain the upper hand there. When Hitler lost it, he made the people of Antwerp pay. He sent V-Bombs in to terrorize the city. This terror lasted for six months. But, what is often not known is that there was a strategic answer to these V-Bombs. It was simply known by its code name, Antwerp X.
