Operation Steinbock - the ‘Baby Blitz’ January 1944

Header Image: RAF Mosquito night-fighters were an essential element of the British defences against the German bombing raids of Operation Steinbock in early 1944.

Eighty years ago, in January 1944, the German Luftwaffe began an air campaign of bombing raids against London and other cities in England, which was to be the largest since the ‘Blitz’ of 1940-41. Named Operation Steinbock by the Germans, it was to be the final large-scale campaign of manned-aircraft bombing raids against England. The German high command ordered this bombing offensive as a reprisal for the increasingly effective Allied combined bomber offensive against German cities and the attendant decrease in the morale of its civilian population.
