Written by the man who commanded the British bombing of Germany, Arthur Harris, these memoirs provide a comprehensive view of British air strategy in World War II. The author describes his rise through the Royal Air Force (RAF) to lead the Bomber Command. He documents virtually every aspect of the bombing campaign against Germany. Harris explains each major campaign, and discusses individual raids including attacks on Dresden, Berlin, Mainz, and Cologne. Additionally, he shows how the RAF grew and evolved in response to increasing German air defense. While his main focus is descriptive, the author also justifies his goals and decisions for bombing.
