9780004720142: Bomber Command: Reaping the Whirlwind (Collins Gem)
From the Publisher:

Was the RAF’s bombing of German cities justifiable? Did it shorten the war, or were 55,000 aircrew sacrificed for nothing? Sixty years after its creation, RAF Bomber Command remains controversial. Bomber Command: Reaping the Whirlwind investigates the claims and counter-claims.

Over 80 Bomber Command veterans were interviewed for C4’s film Reaping the Whirlwind (first shown in October 1996). Dramatic eye witness testimony reveals what it was like to fly mission after mission over Germany when only one crew in ten survived to complete a tour of operations.
The first hand accounts are backed by an authoritative text by Professor Richard Overy (acclaimed author of Why the Allies Won and The Times Atlas of the 20th Century ). He assesses the importance of Bomber Command’s role in the defeat of Germany and the debate about the bombing of Dresden.
The combination of veterans’ testimony with the latest academic research will make Bomber Command the definitive account of Britain’s most controversial wartime campaign.

From the Publisher:

From 1940 to 1945 RAF Bomber Command attacked the industrial heartland of Germany. Daylight attacks were impossible in the face of German interceptors, so RAF aircrew had to learn to bomb by night. Anti-aircraft guns and night fighters took their toll; 55,000 RAF personnel lost their lives in the bombing campaign. Survivors of this campaign reveal what it was like to take off, knowing that the chance of completing a tour of operations was less than one in ten. They describe every aspect of their war from training flights to special missions, and how it felt to bail out from a stricken bomber over the Ruhr.
