What was achieved by the deaths of thousands of German civilians during the allied bomber campaign against Germany during World War II? Many of the casualties were women and children. Were all means justified against Nazi Germany? Concentrating on the European theater of the war, acclaimed military historian Robin Neillands examines the details of the controversial allied air offensive campaign: its strengths and fundamental flaws, the technical difficulties and developments and, above all, the day-to-day, night-by-night endurance of the crews pressed to the limit in discomfort and danger, facing enemy fire.
