The Battle of Berlin was the British bombing campaign on Berlin from November 1943 to March 1944. Not limited solely to Berlin, the campaign targeted other German cities as well, to prevent the concentration of defences in Berlin. The campaign was launched by Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur Harris, AOC of RAF Bomber Command in November 1943. Harris believed this could be the blow that broke German resistance: "We can wreck Berlin from end to end if the USAAF come in with us. It will cost us between 400 and 500 aircraft. It will cost Germany the war". By this time he could deploy over 800 long-range bombers on any given night, equipped with new and more sophisticated navigational devices such as H2S radar. Between November 1943 and March 1944, Bomber Command made 16 massed attacks on Berlin.

  • O termo Batalha de Berlim é algumas vez utilizado restritamente para a campanha de bombardeamento de Berlim da Royal Air Force, entre Novembro 1943 e Março 1944. O Comando de Bombardeamento organizou dezesseis ataques principais na capital alemã. Durante os ataques a RAF destruiu mais de 24 km² e perdeu 450 aviões. Arthur Harris planejou reduzir a cidade a nada mais que escombros para atingir a vitória. Harris queria também reduzir as baixas entre os soldados aliados, tentando evitar a necessidade de entrar em Berlim por terra.

  • La battaglia aerea di Berlino fu lo scontro tra i bombardieri britannici ed i caccia e la contraerea tedeschi sul cielo di Berlino, ma non solo, durante la seconda guerra mondiale. Nel marzo 1944, verso la fine della battaglia, intervennero anche i velivoli della Eighth Air Force statunitense.
  • La bataille aérienne de Berlin est une campagne de bombardement anglo-américaine sur Berlin qui se déroula de novembre 1943 à mars 1944 pendant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. La campagne ne se limita cependant pas à Berlin, d'autres villes allemandes furent attaquées afin d'éviter une trop forte concentration des défenses sur Berlin, sachant que le Bomber Command britannique avait d'autres responsabilités et menait en même temps d'autres campagnes. La campagne fut lancée par Arthur "Bomber" Harris, Air Officer Commanding du RAF Bomber Command en novembre 1943. Harris croyait en effet que cette offensive permettrait de casser la résistance allemande : « It will cost us between 400 and 500 aircraft. It will cost Germany the war. » (cela va nous coûter entre 400 et 500 avions. Mais cela va coûte
  • Powietrzna bitwa o Berlin – seria brytyjskich nalotów bombowych na Berlin dokonywanych od listopada 1943 do marca 1944 roku. Kampania nie ograniczała się wyłącznie do Berlina. Bombardowane były też, celem zapobieżenia koncentracji niemieckich myśliwców nad stolicą, inne miasta niemieckie (na przykład Hamburg, Kolonia, Brema, Magdeburg).
