Page 8 THE TYNDALL TARGET AS IF BOMBS WERE ALL Men speak of the bombs that dropped on Hamburg, as if bombs were all. The ashes of London fell there, glowing again with British anger. ihe dead lamps of PrCDJUe and Paris spilled flaming oil. Broken swords from Greece; bloody bayonets from Serbia; rusty chains from Poland fell upon Hamburg. All the shattered chal rces and splintered altars; the gibbets; the bloody wal Is, the dungeon stones of Europe pelted down. CA.lr bombs burst red--red as the blood of murdered Dutch children. The smoke bloomed white--pallid as the starved faces of Norwegian women Were there cries of fear in Hamburg town-or merely the echoes from Guernica, lidice and Coventry? For five days and nights the storm battered Hamburg. Deadly as a Gestapo firing squad, merciless as a Nazi hangman, with alI the indiscriminate fury of aU-boat torpedo, the typhoon shook that city's wal Is. They toppled into heaps of rubble end death stank in the streets. Hamburg was and is not--Hamburg is a dead city. And now the storm moves onward--to Berlin--and Tokyo. Vengeance, hate and terror--those three valkyries beloved of the Gem1an and Japanese--are coming home to dwel I among their worshippers. Lift up your eyes, oh lovers of destruction and death I Your own blood, in a ghastly rain, shall blind you. --From AAF Blue Network Broadcast "Wings to Victory" Furni5hed by SfJeciol Service jor uc:e on Orientation Bulletin Boordc;
