Wargames…

AMERIKA BOMBER: Evil Queen of the Skies – Strategic Bombing of America, 1947-48

Amerika Bomber: Evil Queen of the Skies – Strategic Bombing of America, 1947-48 In another timeline, England stands alone in Europe: beaten down but not completely destroyed. The Soviet collapse in 1944 combined with an armistice allows the Germans to rest and refit their armies and deploy back to the west. The Americans have finally decided to declare war on Germany, but it seems to be a somewhat futile gesture, as any attempt to liberate Europe would have to face the full might of the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe. In 1946, the Amerika Bomber becomes a reality. The German Atomic bomb project is almost complete. In 1947, the first missions begin against the American homeland.
