About this book
A major new book on the most controversial military issue of WWII, the bombing and terrorising of civilians. The use of massive fleets of bombers on both sides continues to challenge the idea that Allies specifically fought a 'moral' war. This book radically overhauls our understanding of the war. From the author of "The Dictators" and "Russia's War".
Presents the history of the Blitz and bombing in the Second World War. This book examines not just the most well-known parts of the campaign, but the significance of bombing on many other fronts - the German use of bombers on the Eastern Front for example, or the Allied campaigns against Italian cities.
