Great Britain, May 11, 1940. They bombed the quiet peaceful town known as Westphalia which was miles from any front. The historian J. F. P. Veale notes in his book, _Advance To Barbarism_, that Great Britain's bombing of Westphalia was "the first deliberate breach of the fundamental rule of civilized warfare that hostilities must only be waged against the enemy combatant forces."
