To this day, only a few know the truth about the raid on Bari, Italy. Indeed, few have even heard about the disaster. Both the U.S. and Great Britain have been silent, not to hide the fact that the German air raid took place, but the fact that an appalling incident happened because of the attack. More than 2,000 servicemen and civilians were killed. But the true death toll may never be known because the number of deaths from the attack has continued to increase over the last 65 years.
