I thought the first German bombing of London was a complete mistake? A navigation error accompanied with the mis-identification of the lights of London.

Both sides had somewhat of a “gentlemen’s agreement” about bombing London or Berlin.

First time I've heard that although I understand that Hitler had a grudging respect for the British. However he had no such compunctions about any of the other European nations.

You mean like the bombings of Warsaw and Rotterdam were 'mistakes'?
