Re: La Lehrgeschwader 1 , l`Escadre au Griffon Tome 1

Thank you Col Bruggy and Nick Beale for the additional documentation. I was aware that there were casualties at Borgo-Poretta, but my main focus was Alesani since my father was there.

The men at Alesani saw the flashes of light in the night sky toward the north and knew that someone was getting hit. No one guessed that the Germans would, or even could, return the same night for another strike.
