From the cover: “Bomber Command’s offensive against the cities of Germany was one of the epic campaigns of the Second World War. 56.000 British and Common- wealth aircrew and something like 600,000 Germans died in the course oft he RAF’s attempt to win the war by bombing. The struggle began in 1939, with a few score primitive Whitleys, Hampdens and Wellingtons groping blindly through the darkness over Europe. It ended six years later with 1,600 Lancasters, Halifaxes and Mosquitoes equipped with the cream of Britain’s wartime high technology, razing whole cities in a single night. This is the first book to bring together in one volume the strategic and moral debate with the story of the commanders and aircrew. Using personal accounts and the wartime files now released to the Public Record Office.”
