    Default Nurnburg 16th / 17th March 1945

    Would anyone happen to have Form B No 572 for this operation, or any other documents which detail the objectives of this raid (or reference to avoiding the POW Camp in the area)?

    I have the 8 Group ORB as a start point

    Your usual help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    PeteT, From Bomber Command report on Night Operations 16/17 March 1945 (Night Raid Report 867):
    The intention was to complete the destruction of the built up area and associated industries and rail facilities.

    Heavy damage was caused to the eastern and south-eastern parts of the town and practically completed the devastation of the built up area. Industries and rail facilities were heavily damaged.
    Regards, Terry
