The Strategic Bombing of Germany, 1940-1945

Synopsis

This book is the only full-scale account of the strategic air offensive against Germany published in the last 20 years, and is also the only one that treats the British and the Americans with parity. Much of what Levine writes about British operations will be unfamiliar to American readers. Levine gets past a simple account of "what we did to them" and describes the target systems and German countermeasures in detail, providing exact yet dramatic accounts of the great bomber operations--the Ruhr dams, Ploesti, Regensburg, and Schweinfurt. The book is broad-gauged, touching many matters--from the development of bombing doctrine before the war to the technical development of the Luftwaffe and the RAF.
