A BOOK of confessions from German PoWs has unearthed the extent of Nazi brutality towards innocent civilians in the Second World War.
One Luftwaffe airman who shot at people during the Battle of Britain says “We saw them and fired. It was fun.”
A corporal remembers how he was told to murder 20 Italian civilians, but “enjoyed it so much” that his unit didn’t stop until it hit 50.
A fighter pilot recalls how he liked killing fleeing civilians in France and Belgium, calling the subsequent massacre “beautiful”.
