Gotta put the facts straight[edit]

I quote from site:

A total of 3100 flights were made by Bomber Command, and an additional 2200 by the American Air Force which joined the operation on May 1st. Operation Manna ended with Germany's surrender on May 8th. Although over 11 000 tons of food were dropped in the ten days of the operatio

Maybe someone with the knowledge should check the figures and fix them. --CopperKettle (talk) 21:10, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Is operation Chowhound counted as a part of "Manna"? Then the tonnage must be about 11 000. But in that case the name "Chowhound should be listed in the beginning of the article, methinks. --CopperKettle (talk) 11:44, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
Put a redirect of "operation Chowhound" to "manna"; added some info from the pages available at google books. --CopperKettle (talk) 20:47, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

03:54, 16 March 2015 (UTC) It appears that Manna and Chowhound were two assignments (to the USAF and RAF) of the same operation. Recently published, "Operation Chowhound" is well-documented as to the statistics behind these operations (with a focus on the US side of it). See [1]
