Maybe it's different in Britain but I can't think of a single person I know who would care. Most of them would think it was pretty cool. I'm confused what the Luftwaffe did that is so wrong during WWII. Maybe there is a gap in my education, but the bombing of London isn't really "wrong" during wartime, is it?
I would guess because it sounds badass. And BMW used to make planes.
Agreed. This is why people can be ignorant, their high-school history books identify the Luftwaffe as something evil to be associated with Nazis, while subjectively telling of how the fire bombs dropped on Dresden by the USAF was completely justified.
Use your mind people, everything is not relative.
