The role of Bomber Command in the Second World War is still shrouded in mystery. This book provides a new story of the campaign and is both a military history and an investigation as to how the modern image has come about. Read this book to get a modern and to my mind as someone who lived through the German equivalent, acceptable, view of Harris and the efficacy of bombing.

Although the bomber received high praise from news outlets and popular film during the war, the book reveals how postwar coverage of the command sprouted resistance, dissension, and even shame in the minds of some people regarding the implementation of this strategic weapon's awesome power as it laid waste to Dresden in 1945.

This book provides a new story of the campaign and is both a military history and an investigation as to how the modern image has come about. Mark Connelly draws together all the strands to look at the image created by this outpouring.

This book shows why Bomber Command, in one of the largest and bloodiest campaigns of World War II, with 55,000 aircrew lost and more officer fatalities than in World War I, has received so much attention and yet is still a ""lost and black sheep"" among British wartime glories. This book provides a new and revisionary narrative of the campaign and is both a military history and an investigation of how the modern image has come about.
