Book documents World War II bombing of Wiesbaden
WIESBADEN, Germany — More than 70 years since World War II ended, it’s hard to tell that Wiesbaden, Germany, now home to U.S. Army Europe, was bombed hundreds of times by British and American planes in that conflict.
Wiesbaden resident and historian Thomas Weichel’s book, “Wiesbaden im Bombenkrieg” (“The Bombing of Wiesbaden”), documents and explains that bombing campaign.
