'This book... counters some of the claptrap uttered [about the bomber war]. It is also a compelling and very moving account.' Major General Julian Thompson CB OBE 'Rarely has oral history been put to better use.' Blake Morrison, Independent on Sunday 'An engrossing study... a valuable contribution to the history of air warfare.' Saul David, Sunday TelegraphFrom the Publisher:
The bomber campaign was the most controversial of World War II. Did it help bring Germany to her knees? Was the RAF wrong to bomb cities? Did the USAAF really attack only military targets? Was anything achieved but the death of women and children? If not, are the bombers - and especially Sir Arthur Harris - war criminals? Or were all means justified against the Nazis?;Robin Neillands examines every detail of the campaign, and also the day-by-day, night-by-night endurance of the crews, flying to the limit, well aware of their fate if shot down. He draws on the personal experiences of not only British but of American, Australian, Canadian and other Allied fliers as well, and also of German aircrew and civilians.;Neillands also examines the moral issues, and the case against Harris in particular. This text aims to contribute to the history of conflict; the age of freefall bombs has passed, but veterans are still alive to state their case, and to tell a new generation what their war was like.
