D-Day minus 2. June 4, 1944. The deceptions continue. Today, 231 B-17s bomb the Pas de Calais area in the morning, 285 more hit the same area after lunch and another  400 bombers spread across the coastal areas just inland to hit German airfields, rail yards, radar sites and coastal batteries – everywhere but in the Normandy region. More than 700 P-51s, P-38s and P-47s swarm inland like locust dive bombing and strafing anything that moves. The Germans wonder – is this D-Day?  Nope, not yet. See The War Against The Luftwaffe and The Pointblank Directive. Thanks. D
