Robin Neillands examines every detail of the bomber campaign against Germany during World War II. He looks at the strengths and fundamental flaws in doctrine; the technical difficulties and developments; and the day-by-day, night-by-night endurance of the crews, flying to the limit in discomfort and danger. The book includes oral history in the shape of personal accounts not only of the British but of Americans, Australians, Canadians and other Allied fliers, and also of German aircrews and civilians.

'A pleasure to read. As well as a tour d'horizon, it's a tour de force' -- British Army Review 20041101 'Rarely has oral history been put to better use' -- Blake Morrison, Independent on Sunday 'An engrossing study of the first 30 years of strategic air forces ! Neillands has made a valuable contribution to the history of air warfare' -- Sunday Telegraph 'In a crystal clear and reasoned way, this book counters some of the claptrap uttered about this aspect of the Second World War. It is also a compelling and very moving account of how thousands of British, Commonwealth and American aircrew sallied forth to attack Hitler's Reich' -- Major General Julian Thompson
