Something quite interesting about the Junkers Ju-88 I read about recently…

French Junkers Ju-88s. The French captured several in 1944 in various states and repairing those they could and building some of their own (nice of the Germans to build some Ju-88 factories in France), the French actually used them against their original owners!

Flying against the German pocket of resistance at La Rochelle on the west coast of France, they would attack in groups of 3-10 aircraft with simultaneous release of bombs (nicknamed American Bombing), which were also of German origin. However due to accidents and unfamiliarity with the Ju-88 losses were heavy.
