Plot

At the end of December 1944, with the collapse of the German offensive in the Ardennes, which was supposed to determine the fate of the war, the idea of carrying out a massive attack on 20 Allied airfields in the Netherlands, Belgium and France emerged. The operation was to be carried out with surprise, with an approach to targets at a low altitude - in the so-called blind spot of Allied radar stations. The basic assumption was to maximize the loss of enemy air force, without entering an open battle, in which case the Germans would face overwhelming losses. The author of the plan was Luftwaffe’s field marshal Hugo Speerle, and in the action was performed by squadrons of fighters and bombers, it total, about 900 planes. Operation Bodenplatte was one of the biggest relocations of equipment since the invasion of Normandy.
