Guernica

Something to think about on Sunday,April 26 - the anniversary of the bombing of Guernica.

Perhaps best remembered today as the inspiration for the painting of the same name by Picasso, this little city in Republican Spain was the subject for a test of Luftwaffe strategy and equipment. These bombing tactics would later be adopted by Axis and Allies alike and have remained in use ever since.
