"For most of the 600-mile trip, clouds covered the raiders, but when they reached Berlin a few minutes before midnight, the skies were cloudless and the flare-lit target showed up clearly below. Berlin took it for 42 minutes, during which 1,800 tons of high explosives and 1,000,000 incendiaries fell on the city...Most of the damage was done in the western and south-western sections of the city - Charlottenburg, Spandau and Wilmersdorf - where factories and their workers are concentrated... A Stockholm report said the Berlin police had accounted for 5,680 dead, and the Nazi welfare organization said it had fed 73,000 citizens the day after the raid."
